Agent questions Flames use of Michael Frolik

TSN

Agent Allan Walsh was not impressed by the Calgary Flames making his client Michael Frolik a healthy scratch for Saturday's loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Walsh took to Twitter on Sunday to question the decision-making of Flames head coach Bill Peters. 

"Many people in Calgary have been reaching out asking why Michael Frolik is a healthy scratch," Walsh wrote. "Keeping one of the teams most efficient and versatile forwards in the stands marginalizes and devalues a great team player. Head coach’s attempt to run a good player out of town?"

Walsh added that Frolik "consistently ranks #1 among players in fitness testing results year after year at Calgary Flames training camp."

Frolik declined to comment on Walsh's tweets Monday.

"I'm sorry but on this (situation) I don't think you are going to get (answers) from me," Frolik said, per the Calgary Sun. "I want to focus on tonight's game and help the guys and fight for the guys tonight. With the ice time I had, I didn't get a flow in the game. Those things happen. But I'm back right now and I just want to battle for the guys and be good with (the second) line and focus on tonight's game."
