Acquired: Signed 3-year contract with Detroit (NHL) 7/31/12
Personal:
Plus: Sees the game well... Elite wrist shot and one timer... Quick release with velocity... Plays with an edge... Capable of bulling his way to the net to create a scoring chance... A fierce forechecker... Known as an agitator... creative player with great hands...
Minus: Skating needs improvement... Defensive game not a strength... Inconsistent... Agitating style sometimes results in bad penalties...
Organizational Comments: "Every shift, he works, works, works, He really can finish. He's got a good shot. He can play the point on the power play. He can find loose pucks around the net. He's relentless on the forecheck." Jiri Fischer - Wings Director of Player Development
What GRC says: Fall 2013: Frk is a power forward with an elite shot and good size. He is tough to play against because he uses his size and strength well and is abrasive. He needs to shore up his defensive game and keep working on his quickness, but should be an exciting player to watch.
Role: Scoring forward
Projection: NHL top 6 forward
