There is apparently some debate within Detroit's organization whether or not to re-sign pending restricted free agent Martin Frk.

Frk has some scoring upside and possesses a great shot, but inconsistencies in his game limited his ice time in 2017-18. He posted 11 goals and 25 points in 68 contests. Frk has arbitration rights if the Red Wings give him a qualifying offer.

Martin Frk understands how he has to play in order to get more ice time next year.

Frk lamented not being able to score more often, but he feels he learned a great deal from his his first NHL campaign. "Blash is really strict and he wants the players to work on both sides of the ice," he said of Detroit head coach Jeff Blashill. "It's definitely a little bit different for me. I'm trying to be as good offensively and defensive side. Especially on that fourth line you don't want the line to score against you." In 68 games, he recorded 11 goals and 25 points. Frk will play for the Czech Republic at the IIHF World Championship next month.
