Matt Fraser has scored the most goals in the AHL over the last three seasons, so the 23-year-old winger knows what is expected of him during any stint at the NHL level.

But the goals haven’t fallen for Fraser quite yet after five games with the Bruins as a reinforcement amid frontline injuries, and he’s gone pointless with just six shots on net in the aforementioned five games. "I think I’ve played okay, but I’m not content. Obviously I’m looking for a little more production out of myself," said Fraser. "I think I’ve been doing the little things right. Chipping pucks in, and chipping pucks out. I’ve been making sure I’m in the right spots on the ice in both zones. But I’m a guy that knows what he needs to do to succeed, and knows what I can do out there. When I don’t get the results I’m looking for, I’m probably the hardest person on myself."

Matt Fraser picked up his first career NHL fight Thursday night against Buffalo.

He dropped the gloves with Marcus Foligno in the first period. "I'll never be mistaken for a fighter, but anything I can do to help stay in the lineup or help get the momentum our way, I'm definitely willing to do that," said Fraser. "I definitely don't want to be known as a one-dimensional player. Those top-six guys can do it all. You look at Looch and he can literally do it all. And (Jarome) Iginla can do it all. It's something you strive for." Fraser has skated in five games with Boston this season, where he has no points and six shots.

Matt Fraser and Jordie Benn were healthy scratches for the Stars on Sunday.

While Fraser has only one assist in nine games after scoring 33 goals in the AHL this season but coach Glen Gulutzan has been quite impressed with the youngster. "I've watched Matty quite a bit, and he's not going to wow you with 100 different things," Gulutzan said. "He's a quick-strike guy, and he hasn't had a lot of opportunities to bury pucks. He has an incredible shot and incredible release, and he needs to find those areas in the NHL to get his shot away. That's part of the learning process." Fraser could be someone to look at in a couple of years in fantasy hockey as he knows how to score.

It's not clear if Matt Fraser will get into a game right off the bat after being called up from the Texas Stars earlier this week, but there's no doubt he deserves some consideration.

"Who has scored more goals in the American League over the past two years?" Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said after Tuesday's practice in McKinney. Fraser has scored 61 goals in 124 games over the last two seasons for the Texas Stars. He ranked second in the AHL last season with 37 goals in 73 games, and he's tied for fourth in the league with 24 in 51 games this season. Over the past two seasons, no one has scored more goals in the AHL than Fraser. "He certainly earned his chance to get a try up here," said Gulutzan. "Whether we get him in or not, we'll make those decisions when they come. Certainly he is deserving of being here and he is a quality individual. We're having success with young guys, and at some point he is going to get a chance."

Matt Fraser contributed to both Texas goals in its 3-2 setback to Grand Rapids on Saturday night.

The winger had a goal and an assist. Fraser is a threat to score every night -- as he's had three straight 32-plus goal seasons (two WHL, one AHL). He's struggled a bit this year to produce offense in other ways, though, with only nine points, seven of which are markers.
