Frattin out for four months

Matt Frattin scored his AHL playoff-leading 10th goal to clinch the Toronto Marlies’ series victory over Oklahoma City in the semifinals.

But that goal will cost him the next four months.

Frattin suffered a season-ending knee injury that will force him to have surgery. Damien Cox of the Toronto Star reported that the surgery is expected to keep Frattin out for the next four months, which means he will miss training camp.

The Calder Cup Finals between Toronto and the Norfolk Admirals will begin Friday night.

Frattin played most of the season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, scoring eight goals and 15 points in 56 games for the Leafs. General manager Brian Burke moved Frattin and Jake Gardiner back to the AHL for the playoff run at the end of the season.

Frattin is a restricted free agent this summer. Look for the Leafs to lock him up, as Burke is a big fan.

  1. Sorry to hear of the knee injury, but I am glad to hear Mr. Frattin has made great strides this year in the NHL as well as his time in the AHL. I wish him a speedy and 100% full recovery. Mr. Frattin has faced adversity and overcome obstacles in the past, this injury is just a minor delay in him having a long and productive career in the NHL.

  2. Mr. Schlossman – do you know the extent of Mr. Frattin’s knee injury? ACL and/or MCL tear etc.? Please let us know. Thank you.

  3. Did he hurt it on that empy net goal when crashing into the net? He got up OK it seemed. That would really suck to have hurt it on that play. It was quite the individual effort for sure.
