Red Wings Sign Martin Frk To Three-Year Deal

Martin Frk, the Red Wings' second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, has signed a three-year entry-level deal, according to the Red Wings' official Twitter account.

Frk, 19, was taken No. 49 overall. According to HockeysFuture.com, the Czech Republic native was the leading scorer in the Czech U20 Extraliga, tallying 28 goals and 30 assists in 41 games.

The Red Wings, who didn't have a first-round pick in this year's draft, say they are high on Frk. From the Detroit Free Press:

"We're excited about him," said Red Wings assistant general manager Jim Nill. "He's one of Czech's top players. He had a tough year last year with injuries, but as an under-ager he was one of the top players at world juniors. Heavy body. Very competitive and he's got some good skills."

Frk suffered a concussion last season during a preseason game, but Nill said that unless it becomes a recurring issue, it's not something the team is worried about.
