Frolov Scores Hat Trick in Scrimmage #1

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that the Alex Frolov-Marian Gaborik led Team 1 beat the Artem Anisimov-Brandon Dubinsky led Team 2, 6-4, in the first scrimmage at the Rangers’ training camp.

The Frolov-Derek Stepan-Gaborik line accounted for four goals - a hat trick for Frolov and a goal for Stepan.

Marc Staal had a goal and an assist while Brandon Dubinsky had a goal for the Anisimov/Dubinsky team in the loss.

Apparently, MZA spent much of the first period trying to throw his 5-foot-7 frame around.

Here are the rosters for the second scrimmage:

Team 2: Avery-White-Fedotenko (nice, Avery and Fedotenko on a line together after their Pittsburgh brush-up), Dupont-Boyle-Weise, Chappell-Horak-Bourque; D: Del Zotto-Rozsival, Klassen-Sauer, Maggio; GK: Lundqvist.

Team 3: Prospal-Drury-Callahan, Boogaard-Kennedy-Thomas, Garlock-McNaught; D: Redden-Eminger, Niemi-Semenov, Kundratek; GK Johnson, Parise. hearing the Frolov-Stepan-Gaborik line went off today. Getting closer to seeing Stepan in the opening night lineup.

...nice to see MZA trying to show he can withstand the physical NHL, but I'd rather see him showcasing his offensive talent than his physicality.

If Stepan makes it I hope they put him with Gabby and Frolov. He needs to play with skilled players. It seems like Stepan has the passing and scoring to match Gabby and Frolov. This is very exciting.

This kid seems to be the real deal. Imagine a young center with great anticipation and vision passing to a couple of scorers like Gabby and Frolov. Can't wait to see him in action against other teams to see if his form holds up.

Paul, yeah, I had him rated much higher on my rating "wish" list then yahoo or some of the other fantasy draft rating lists.

1 year deal, something to prove, playing, maybe, with Gab. Good pick up.
