Frolik signed a five-year, $21.5 million contract with the Flames on Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

The Flames' top line of Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, and Jiri Hudler was as good as any in the league, but the team's lack of secondary scoring prompted them to go out and lure Frolik away from Winnipeg. Frolik, who has produced back-to-back 42-point campaigns for the Jets, figures to slot in at one of the wing spots on the second line for Calgary alongside up-and-coming center Mikael Backlund.

Frolik tallied the game-winning goal in Saturday's season finale against the Flames.

Frolik attained some buzz in fantasy circles in March after building an eight-game point streak, but that momentum died soon thereafter, as he compiled only three goals and two assists over his final 14 games. He'll likely occupy a top-six role in the Jets' lineup during the postseason, though he doesn't profile as much more than a complementary scorer.

Frolik extended his point streak to seven games with a goal in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Blues.

Initially deployed on the top line as an injury replacement for Blake Wheeler, Frolik has been able to hold down the gig even after Wheeler returned a few games ago. During his run, he's potted five goals and dished out two assists, becoming a trendy waiver wire pickup in the process. Those is mid-sized leagues or deeper should go out and get Frolik if he's still available.

Frolik scored his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Senators.

Frolik now has points in each of his last five games, and 14 goals and 20 assists on the season to go along with a plus-5 rating. Frolik has proven to be a viable fantasy option since being traded to the Jets before last season, and is now only 11 points away from his career high of 45.

Frolik bagged an empty-net goal and attempted a team-leading five shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

Making his debut on the top line with Blake Wheeler (lower body) unavailable, Frolik didn't look to be at all out of place. With Wheeler already ruled out for Thursday's game against the Blues, look for Frolik to remain in the role for at least another game. He could deliver fine value in daily formats while his price remains depressed.

With Blake Wheeler (undisclosed) absent, Frolik skated on the first line at Tuesday's morning skate, according to Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press

If Wheeler doesn't suit up, Frolik is poised to join the first line alongside Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little. Wheeler, Ladd and Little have all played in every game this season, each scoring between 44 and 49 points. Frolik has also played all 61 games, with 30 points (12 goals) to show for it.

Frolik scored his first goal since Jan. 18 -- and his first point since Jan. 29 -- on Thursday, with his power-play tally accounting for the lone Winnipeg goal in a 3-1 loss to the Predators.That was six straight without a point and nine straight without a goal for the Czech winger before he became the lone Jet to break through on Pekka Rinne in this one. He remains a lower-end fantasy asset who's best reserved for deep leagues.

Frolik netted a goal and logged 19:29 worth of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Coyotes.

Frolik has started off the New Year strong, and has tallied six points in his last six contests. The 26-year-old is now up to 10 goals on the season, and with 26 points through 47 games he should be able to challenge his career-high mark of 45 points.

Frolik opened the scoring in Thursday's 2-1 win over Dallas with his ninth goal of the season, giving him points in four straight games.

All four of the points Frolik had collected over the prior three games were assists, so it must have felt nice for him to punch in his first goal of the new year. Frolik's been a solid source of secondary offense in fantasy over the last couple months and isn't showing signs of slowing down.

Frolik picked up a pair of assists and went a season-high plus-4 in Tuesday's 8-2 romp against Florida.

Frolik's been producing steadily of late, with five assists over his last five games, but his goal-scoring remains highly intermittent, with the last one having come before the new year. Still, he's carrying a slightly better point pace than last season and could challenge his career high of 45, set in his rookie year of 2008-09 with the Panthers.
