Alexander Frolov frustrated by injury // LA Times

Forward has been limited in mobility and scoring by groin injury, but he's slowly getting better and his play is improving.

In many ways, forward Alexander Frolov had a breakout year for the Kings last season, with career highs for goals (35), power-play goals (10), assists (36) and points (71).

But so far this season, Frolov's numbers are nothing special, with only one goal and six assists in nine games.

"We need him to contribute," Kings Coach Marc Crawford said about Frolov, who is in his fourth season with the Kings. " . . . He was such a big part whenever we had success last year."

A big reason behind Frolov's slow start has been a groin injury that has plagued him since training camp. It helped limit Frolov's mobility and scoring, which is what he does best.

"I had a tough time for the first three games," the 25-year-old said. "It was frustrating because of the groin injury."

After picking up an assist against the Ducks to start the season in London, Frolov did not score a point in the next three games. But since, Frolov's groin injury has gotten better and his play on the ice has improved.

Frolov currently has a five-game scoring streak, including his first goal of the season scored in the Kings' 4-2 victory at Vancouver on Friday.

"He's getting better; he scored a goal," Crawford said. "I don't think we've seen him at his best yet."
