Is it just me or does he look like he skates bent over all the time? Really weird skating style.

That's the first thing I noticed, Soup Snake.

And damn, what is with all the concussed draftees the past few years? Something has got to be done about this.

Skating is his most glaring weakness according to scouts.

Yeah I saw that but I didn't imagine that it would mean he loses half of his height while skating haha.

The mooseheads are my local team and Martin Frk is a great pick for 49. He has had injury problems but he is a point producer. I hope he gets ot stay in the Q for anothe ryear or so so I can still watch him play but he will be another great late pick for the wings mark my words.

Now if only we can find a way to get Zach Fucale or Nathan Mackinnon in next years draft from the mooseheads I'll be laughing.

I noticed his skating didn't look too great in those highlight videos.

Does anyone know how to pronounce his name? Is it Frik or Ferk?

Very nice pick. A top10 player before his concussion. Very Jurco/Tvrdon like pick. Loads of skill.

More like Ferk, but roll the r.

Good pick, for 49th. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

it's Czech name, so more like "F(y)rk" with very short "y".

looks like decent pick to me to add depth scoring to the system.

Looking at the way he skates I'm not surprised at all that he had a concussion. At the start of the video watching him skate with his head down I immediately thought this guy will get killed in a NHL game. Dude is going to be asking for it if he continues to skate with his head down and hunched over like that.

Yes!!! The guy I wanted to get the Wings got, simply awesome.

i knew i saw someone ask for him in the draft discussion somewhere. good call dude. he has some nice puck skills. can play the point on the power play too and has a pretty good clapper. i like this pick. and he's even right handed! and all of the picks other than the goalie are exactly 6 feet tall and can still grow so we can't even complain that they're little punks that Kenny's drafting.

He has no vowels in his last name. He must be a total badass!

From the reports I read, this kid was predicted to go 15-20. Needs to work on his skating. We have a guy named Pulkkinen that has below-average skating abilities.

May be a steal, considering he probably would have gone in the 1st round if not for the injury.

Frk is a Russian word that when translated actually means "low skater"

I mean how ironic, amiright?

OK I just made it up
