Experienced striker Michael Frolík is not yet going to end the NHL, he will try to fight his way into the St. Louis Blues.
The 33-year-old hockey player signed a so-called professional trial contract. This was announced on Friday by the club’s general manager Doug Armstrong, who will try another experienced forward, James Neal.
Michael Frolík last worked in Montreal, with whom he agreed on a contract last December. However, he did not get much space from the coaches, he did not start for the Canadiens until the end of March.
In the end, he managed to play only eight matches in his new job, in which he came out empty-handed. He added two more starts on a farm in Laval, where he made his debut together with the young Jan Myšák.
As expected, the finalist of the last play-off with Frolík after the season did not extend the contract. He thus became a free agent, which is now used by St. Louis, where he would like to revive an otherwise rich career in the NHL.
The Kladno native has been in the competition for thirteen seasons, gradually defending the colors of Florida, Chicago, with whom he won the Stanley Cup, Winnipeg, Calgary, Buffalo and the already mentioned Montreal in 2013.
In total, the two-time bronze medalist from the World Cup played 858 matches in the basic part, scoring 384 points in them for 159 goals and 225 recordings. He then added another 47 starts and 19 points (7 + 12) in the playoffs.
