Martin Frk shoots and scores ! The Grand Rapids Griffins are up 4-3 here in the 3rd period in game 6 of the Calder Cup Finals. Those words are something all Griffins and Wings fans alike remember from early June as the Griffins captured their second Calder Cup in five years.
The game winning goal scorer from game six is back for another year in the Wings organization. Martin Frk who was picked up last year after being waived from Carolina . He was also waived by Detroit earlier in the season, how ironic.
Frk, will most likely be back on waivers as prospects have passed him on the depth chart. Although Frk had a career high 50 points last season scoring 27 goals and 23 assists, he has been passed by players like Bertuzzi, and Evgeny Svechnikov. Who will be top on the list of Wings to be called up.
Frk who looks to make the Wings out of training camp , has played four professional seasons with the Toledo Walleye , Griffins and Wings, and a two game stint with Carolina.The problem with Frk is his consistency and his shot. His shots very wicked and fast ,but not accurate and misses the net a lot on the power play , which gives up a lot of power play time going back to the zone to recover the puck and regroup. His consistency is odd, he can be very hot then be very cold and missing the net a lot.
Like Jeff Blashill said , he’s gonna have to be spectacular on the power play to make the team. Spectacular meaning Ovechkin like.
