NHL Draft Results: Red Wings Select Martin Frk With 49th Pick

The Detroit Red Wings had a pretty boring first day of the 2012 NHL Draft. They didn't have a first-round pick, and they weren't involved in any draft-day trades. Their first-rounder was traded away last season for defenseman Kyle Quincey, so they had to wait until the second day for their first pick of 2012.

On Saturday, in the second round of the draft, the Red Wings used their first pick (the 49th overall selection) to select Martin Frk, a right-winger from the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads. Frk is from the Czech Republic and is a 6-foot-0, 198-pound forward.

Frk has been with Halifax the past two seasons. In 2010-11, he played in 62 games and recorded 22 goals and 28 assists for 50 points. Last season, he had 16 goals and 13 assists for 29 points in only 34 games played. He also scored five goals and had 11 assists in 17 playoff games this past season.

Barring a trade, the Red Wings will go back on the clock with the 80th overall pick. They also are currently scheduled to use the 110th, 140th, 170th and 200th overall picks.
