The Malik Report

Updated 2x with video, and Frk was named to the tournament's All-Star team: News is still rolling in on this one so highlights will eventually be added, but Red Wings prospect Martin Frk registered a goal and an assist as the Halifax Mooseheads defeated the Portland Winterhawks 6-4 in the Memorial Cup Final, allowing the QMJHL-champion Mooseheads to capture Major Junior Hockey's most prestigious trophy.
The Canadian Press, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman, Yahoo Sports' Cam Charron, the Halifax Chronicle-Herald's Wily Pavlov, the Halifax Metro News's Andrew Rankin, the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix's Daniel Nugent-Bowman and the London Free Press's Ryan Pyette (with a story-embedded 36-image photo gallery) all provide early recaps, and Sportsnet has posted an auto-play clip in which R.J. Broadhead and Sam Cosentino praise the play of Nathan McKinnon, one of Frk's linemates, and Nathan Drouin praised Frk in his one-on-one interview.
Frk finished with 7 shots, 5 goals, 4 assists and 9 points over the course of 4 Memorial Cup games played, Frk registered 33 points over the course of 17 playoff games in the QMJHL, and he had 35 goals, 49 assists and 84 points over the course of 56 regular season games played during his 2012-2013 season with Halifax. The 6,' 200-pound winger will turn pro with the Grand Rapids Griffins next fall.
Update: We All Bleed Red posted Frk's goal...

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
