"I played with Mo back in Grand Rapids, I didn’t have too much time with Larks," Frk said. "It’s a treat to play with those guys. I enjoyed it.

"You can't just be a power play guy and never play. Ultimately Marty will have to score at a high level. That is his best asset. I think Marty will have to outscore mistakes. He is like lots of players – you make mistakes, if you outscore them, then it helps you win." Frk notched 27 goals and 50 points in 65 AHL games last season.
