Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "When he has the space, he's able to create really well. He does his best work on the power play. The tools are unquestioned, but he's one of those guys who should be doing more than he does 5-on-5." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Great skater with very good edge control. Has ability to find loose pucks due to very good instincts. Has a potential to play at a high level, but needs to learn to play in traffic better. Will be a good pick for an NHL team." (Andrew Degroot, ISS Scout)

• "The talent is there, but he’s small, and gets those games where he’s not totally engaged. He’s soft and light on defence -- a stick-checker -- but his defensive sense is good. He has the smarts. He needs to improve his strength so he can engage better." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "I like Frost, but he’s a slight/lighter bottom four round guy to me. He’s skilled and smart, but he’s very light or soft -- I don’t know what the right word is I’m looking for." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Has a very quick stick and fires hard shots off east-west jump cuts. Nimble on skates with some shake-'n'-bake. Had mostly unskilled linemates, yet was still able to produce lots of dangerous chances, mostly creating on his own. Excels on both special-teams units with excellent anticipation." (Red Line Report)
