Sabres' Michael Frolik: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik (illness) is expected to return to action Saturday against Pittsburgh, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Frolik returned to practice Friday, which was the first sign he'd likely be available against the Penguins. The former Flame will slot into a bottom-six role Saturday.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Ruled out for Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik (illness) won't travel with the team for Tuesday's game versus the Senators.

Frolik didn't participate in Monday's practice, and he'll miss his second straight game. The severity of the illness isn't clear, but he has until Saturday's matchup versus the Penguins to get back to full health.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik (illness) will not suit up for Sunday's game against Toronto, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

Frolik didn't participate in practice over the weekend and his lingering illness will hold him out of Sunday's game. The 31-year-old winger has a goal and two points in 15 games since being acquired by the Sabres. His next chance to play will be Tuesday in Ottawa.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Dealing with sickness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik (illness) didn't participate in Saturday's practice, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Frolik should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup versus the Maple Leafs, and his status could become more clear during morning skate. It looks like Marcus Johansson (upper body) could be ready in time, so he'd simply swap places with Frolik if Frolik can't go.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Not producing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik is in the midst of a 10-game point drought.

Frolik started out his tenure in Buffalo with a goal and an assist through his first five appearances. Since then, he's gone 10 contests without hitting the scoresheet. There was some optimism that the trade could inflate Frolik's fantasy value, but it appears to have had the opposite outcome. He sits at 12 points through 53 outings.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Adds insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik potted a goal and led the team with five shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Frolik's goal came shorthanded and went into an empty net in the third period. He's up to two points in five games with the Sabres, earning minutes in all situations. The 31-year-old has three shorthanded points and 12 points overall in 43 contests between the Sabres and Flames this season.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: First point with Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik picked up an assist in Sunday's win over the Red Wings.

In his third game with the club, Frolik got his first point wearing the blue and gold. While he's been skating on the second line, he hasn't seen any time on the power play yet. His fantasy value will likely remain limited until he can earn some time with the man advantage.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Scoreless in Sabres debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik went scoreless in Thursday's loss to St. Louis.

While Frolik didn't crack the scoresheet, he did see 16:44 of ice time. It's his highest total since Nov. 21 which was also against the Blues. He didn't see any time on the man advantage, but the Sabres only had one power play -- a high-sticking call drawn by Frolik. He put up three hits and two blocks with two shots on goal. Three hits isn't a high total, but it's the most Frolik's thrown in a game this season.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik is expected to make his Sabres debut in Thursday's tilt with the Blues.

Frolik was dealt to the Sabres nearly a week ago, but he didn't practice with the team right away due to visa issues. With that resolved, he's expected to join Buffalo's top six and play on a line with Marcus Johansson and Conor Sheary. Frolik had just 10 points in 38 games with Calgary, but he only averaged 11:56 of ice time per game, none of which was on the man advantage. With an expanded role in the blue and gold, Frolik should see an uptick in production.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Ready for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik appears to have resolved his visa issues following his trade to Buffalo six days ago and is expected to practice Wednesday,

Frolik wasn't seeing time on Calgary's power play before the deal, but he's got plenty of experience on special teams and Buffalo's power play is poor, ranking 22nd in the league and even worse in recent times. With Jeff Skinner and Victor Olofsson on the shelf, there's a chance Frolik sees power-play time right away. There's also room in the top six at even strength, though we'll see how the Sabres shuffle up their lines ahead of Thursday's game in St. Louis.

Sabres' Michael Frolik: Dealt to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flames traded Frolik to the Sabres on Thursday in exchange for a 2020 fourth-round pick.

With the Sabres dealing with a plethora of injuries to their forward group, they chose to acquire solid depth in the form of Frolik. The 31-year-old was palatable in his bottom-six role with the Flames, potting five goals and 10 points through the first 31 games of the 2019-20 campaign. The Sabres will roll with 11 forwards for Thursday's game against Edmonton, but it's likely Frolik will step into a bottom-six role with his new team for Saturday's game against Florida.

Flames' Michael Frolik: On scoresheet with shorty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik potted a shorthanded goal in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Frolik's tally at 15:30 of the third period cut the Blackhawks' lead to 4-2. The goal is Frolik's second shorthanded point in the last three games -- the Czech winger is a notable penalty-killing specialist. He's now amassed 10 points, 44 shots on goal and a minus-10 rating through 38 appearances. Despite the recent surge in offense, Frolik doesn't carry much fantasy value in a bottom-six role.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Records shorthanded assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik produced an assist and two hits in Friday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.

Frolik found Mikael Backlund for a shorthanded goal just 57 seconds into the third period, which produced the final score. It's still been a rough year for Frolik, who only has nine points and a minus-10 rating in 36 games after posting 34 points and a plus-24 rating through 65 contests last year. The 31-year-old has primarily been used on the fourth line lately, which has limited his fantasy value.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Scores decisive goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik scored on his only shot of the game in Thursday's 4-2 win over Toronto.

Frolik only skated 10 shifts in this one, but his goal two minutes into the third period gave the Flames a 3-2 lead and stood as the game-winner. Frolik has now scored in three straight games after finding the net just once in his first 29.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Notches pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

Frolik opened the scoring at 2:11 of the first period, and then set up Zac Rinaldo in the second to stretch the lead to 3-0. Frolik has now produced three points over his last two games despite his fourth-line usage. For the season, the 31-year-old winger has seven points and 37 shots on goal in 31 contests. He's not likely to have much of an impact in fantasy, but his recent turnaround could eventually see Frolik move up the lineup again.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Finds twine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik posted a goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Frolik went 22 games between goals, but his tally Monday was vital, as it gave the Flames a 4-2 lead. The Avalanche rallied to tie, but Sean Monahan scored in overtime to make sure Frolik's scored was meaningful. The Czech winger has just five points and a minus-13 rating in 30 contests this season. Frolik had skated fewer than 10 minutes in each of the last three games.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Snaps 13-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik recorded an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres.

Frolik had gone 13 games and spent two additional contests in the press box since his last appearance on the scoresheet. The 31-year-old winger still has only four points in 26 outings this season. He's a strong penalty-killer, so that skill will keep him in the lineup, but he's little more than a bottom-six forward in 2019-20.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Shuffling around lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik has not registered a point in his last 11 outings.

Coach Bill Peters is trying to get Frolik's offense going, but the veteran winger's struggles have persisted regardless of his role. Frolik was reunited with Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Blues. With just three points and a minus-12 rating in 23 appearances this season, the 31-year-old can be safely ignored in fantasy.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Healthy scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik was a healthy scratch for Thursday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

It's the first time Frolik has been out of the lineup this year, although he seems to have lost his spot on the second line to Andrew Mangiapane. With just three points and a minus-10 rating through 18 appearances, sitting Frolik seems justified. He's been held off the scoresheet in his last six games. The 31-year-old winger, best known for his penalty killing -- seems to have lost a step this year. He's in the final season of a five-year contract, and the cap-strapped Flames may try to deal him at the trade deadline. He has a 10-team no-trade clause, but there may not be many suitors if his struggles persist.

Flames' Michael Frolik: Corrals two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frolik picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-5 shootout win over the Panthers.

Frolik's return to the second line sparked instant results, as both of his assists came on Matthew Tkachuk tallies. The 31-year-old winger has struggled early in the year, with three points and a minus-9 rating in 12 games. When coach Bill Peters shuffles the lines, Frolik usually takes a bottom-six role, which is about what he's earned with his production this year.
