He’s still eligible to return to the OHL for at least one more season, but after completing his third season with the Soo Greyhounds, Aurora, Ontario native Morgan Frost will now get another chance at another title.
After leading the Soo Greyhounds to the OHL Finals for the first time in 25 years and losing to the Hamilton Bulldogs in a series that saw six close games that could’ve gone either way, it was announced this weekend that Hounds leading point man Morgan Frost has been added to the AHL’s Lehigh Valley Phantoms roster.
The Phantoms, who are an affiliate team of the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, are currently in the AHL’s Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Marlies.
The Marlies, who currently lead the best of seven series 1-0, have five former Hounds that are part of that organization, including forward Jean Dupuy, defenceman Alex Gudbranson, assistant coach AJ MacLean, head coach Sheldon Keefe and general manager Kyle Dubas.
Frost, who led the Hounds in scoring with 112 points during the 2017-2018 regular season, will now look to help the Phantoms capture their first ever Calder Cup title in the club’s four year history.
The 19 year old becomes the first Soo Greyhound to suit up in a Phantoms uniform since Nick Cousins and Brandon Alderson both did during the 2015-2016 season.
