Frolik is playing in Tuesday evening's matchup with the Panthers. Frolik's status was not confirmed until puck drop of this game. He logged 10:27 of ice time and one shot on goal through the first two periods of the contest.
Frolik was absent from Monday's practice due to an illness, but he's expected to play Tuesday against the Panthers, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 reports. Frolik has hit a bit of a hot streak recently collecting at least a point in each of the last four contests, with the streak starting on a hat trick against the Oilers. However, those three goals represent his only goals of the campaign, but he has collected eight assists to give him 11 points through 15 games. If he's unable to go Tuesday, Brandon Bollig would be the likely candidate to draw into the lineup in his place.
Frolik scored a hat trick and fired a game-high seven shots on goal in Saturday's win over the Oilers. Frolik has fit in well with Calgary, notching three goals and eight points in 12 games. Skating in a top-six role, the 27-year-old has recorded 33 shots on goal and managed to produce despite minimal power-play time. Coming off a 19-goal season with Winnipeg, Frolik is a streaky scorer who shoots a ton and can explode at any given moment.
Michael Frolik signed a five-year, $21.5 million contract with the Flames on Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
