Penguins approached Kings about Frolov prior to the All-Star break
The Alexander Frolov rumors are starting to gain some steam. In January we reported, Penguins General Manager Ray Shero inquired about Frolov prior to the All-Star break. There’s some buzz going around that Shero picked up talks with the Kings in recent weeks.
The Toronto Sun reports, Before the Penguins dealt for forward Chris Kunitz on Thursday, there was talk Pittsburgh was looking at Kings winger Alexander Frolov as an option.
From what I know, while the Penguins have been looking at him as an option for about 6 weeks now, the Kings continue to ask for too much. A source tells they are asking for more than just Staal.
Frolov leads the Kings with 26 goals and has a cap hit of $2.9 million.
