Morgan Frost

Philadelphia Flyers' center Morgan Frost is the 13th player on Seravalli's trade board.

Frost's 2022-23 season was his best in the NHL, with 19 goals and 46 points, showing he can be a capable producer at the NHL level. This season, however, Frost struggled to stay in the Flyers lineup early on, resulting in the 25-year-old being a healthy scratch.

After not having a consistent spot in the lineup, Frost bounced back with 30 points in his final 44 games, finishing the season with 41 points in 71 games. His second-half performance is more indicative of the kind of player Frost is, which can be enticing for the Blackhawks who are looking to add offense.

Frost is a former first-round pick who looks ready to break out with an increased role on a team with more offensive weapons. The Blackhawks could allow Frost to be the second-line center behind Connor Bedard while possibly seeing time on the first powerplay unit.

After this season, Frost has one more year left on his contract at $2.1 million. If he performs like he did in the back half of this season, he will be due a raise going into the prime of his career.

Seravalli reports that the Flyers won't hesitate the keep Frost unless it's for the right price. The Flyers powerplay and offense in general were not elite this season which did not benefit Frost. Perhaps a change of scenery with increased ice-time could benefit him into becoming a part of the Blackhawks future.
