Frattin traded to Kings

Matt Frattin is headed to Hollywood.

The former Hobey Bakey finalist from UND was traded from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday along with former Cornell goalie Ben Scrivens. The Leafs received goaltender Jonathan Bernier.

Frattin has played part of three seasons with the Leafs, tallying 15 goals in 82 games. The Edmonton native has one year left on his contract and is scheduled to be paid $950,000. It is a one-way deal.

The Kings had ample opportunity to watch Frattin play during his college years as Frattin was teammates with Brett Hextall for three years. Brett’s father, Ron, is the assistant general manager of the Kings.

It was also believed that former Leafs GM Brian Burke was unwilling to part with Frattin in trade talks. Now that Burke is gone, Frattin has been moved.

In Los Angeles, Frattin will become a teammate with former UND defenseman and captain Matt Greene. Frattin’s old UND teammate, Derek Forbort, also is a member of the Kings’ organization.

  1. Ugh how did that team not win a national championship? Lol. Sorry Mr. Miele, Fratty is better than you. Happy for you, Frats… Tear it up in tinsel town!!!

    • Frattin is a better NHL player. Miele was a damn good college hockey player as well as Frattin. Don’t take anything away from Miele.

      • Not taking anything away from him, just saying Frattin was better. I know I wear green-colored glasses, but IMO, Frattin was clearly the best player in college hockey that season and that is translating in the big show.

  2. How didn’t frats win one? How in the heck didn’t Parise or Toews/Oshie win one as well. 3 banners at least missing from rafters. Congrats to frattin. Stanley cup worthy team! Bring the cup to GF toews!!
