Hurricanes claim Frk off waivers

The Carolina Hurricanes announced Sunday that the team claimed forward Martin Frk off waivers from the Detroit Red Wings.

Frk will join Carolina’s training camp following Monday’s scheduled off day.

Frk, 23, skated in 67 games in 2015-16 with the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins, scoring 27 goals and earning 17 assists (44 points). His 27 goals last season ranked second among Griffins skaters, and his 11 power-play goals led the team and ranked tied for fifth in the AHL.

The Pelhrimov, Czech Republic, native has played three full professional seasons since turning pro in 2013-14, and has scored 36 goals and earned 32 assists (68 points) in 148 career AHL regular-season games with Grand Rapids.

Detroit selected Frk in the second round, 49th overall, of the 2012 NHL Draft. He has yet to make his NHL debut.
