Greyhounds’ Morgan Frost named CHL Player of the Week



Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Philadelphia Flyers prospect Morgan Frost of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds is the CHL Player of the Week for the playoff week ending May 6 recording seven points in three games including three goals and four assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-1.

Frost’s week included key contributions in two different playoff rounds for the Greyhounds including a Game 7 victory over the Kitchener Rangers in the OHL’s Western Conference Final plus the opening two games of the Rogers OHL Championship Series against the Hamilton Bulldogs.  In last Monday’s Game 7, Frost scored once and added two assists in regulation before the Greyhounds clinched the series and Western Conference title with a 4-3 triumph in double overtime.  Competing in their first OHL final since 1993, the Greyhounds earned a two-game split with the Bulldogs in a pair of home ice contests last week with Frost contributing an assist in a 4-3 overtime loss in Game 1 on Thursday then a two-goal and one assist performance in Game 2 on Saturday as part of the 4-2 victory.  Frost opened this week with a goal despite a 6-5 loss in Monday’s Game 3.  The series continues Wednesday night for the Robertson Cup with Game 4 action from Hamilton available as part of CHL playoff coverage on Sportsnet One and 360.

An 18-year-old from Aurora, Ont., Frost is currently tied for third in OHL playoff scoring with 27 points including 10 goals and 17 assists through 21 games.  The fourth round pick of the Greyhounds in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection finished his third campaign in Sault Ste. Marie second overall in regular season scoring with a career-high 112 points in 67 games including 42 goals and 70 assists.  The first round pick of the Flyers in the 2017 NHL Draft previously earned CHL Player of the Week honours for the week ending December 17.

Also considered for the award this week was Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Alex Barre-Boulet of the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada who scored two goals and four assists for six points in three games which included a Game 7 win over the Charlottetown Islanders and the opening two games of the Rogers QMJHL Championship Series against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan for the President Cup.  In the WHL, Matteo Gennaro also scored twice with four assists for six points in three games which included a Game 6 victory over the Lethbridge Hurricanes and the opening two games of the Rogers WHL Championship Series against the Everett Silvertips for the Ed Chynoweth Cup.
