Wings Draft Six Big Bodies

The Detroit Red Wings finished up the 2012 Draft today, selecting six players; none of which are under six feet tall. here are all the players the Wings took with insight from various scouting reports:

Martin Frk - RW, Halifax Mooseheads, 6'0, 204 lbs

“Martin is a goal scorer. He wants to score, is hungry to score and is that player who is lurking for the chance to score. He plays a straight ahead game and is more of a shooter. He has a good shot and can beat goaltenders with it down the wing and it's a heavy shot. His skating is good in straight lines and he creates separation between himself and defenders. He has good balance with a low center of gravity and is hard to knock off stride. His agility is adequate but not a necessary requirement for the style of game he plays. He uses his body to push to the scoring area and hold off defenders. He recognizes openings and opportunity and with a playmaking center who can get the puck to him, Martin has the abilities to be a good goal scorer at the NHL level.'' - Craig Button (TSN)
