Chicago Blackhawks right winger Michael Frolik is determined to improve in the coming NHL season.
"I wasn't very good last year and I know I can be better," said Frolik, who had 13 goals and 10 assists in 29 games for Chomutov in Europe during the NHL lockout. "I worked this summer, played some games in the Czech Republic; I'm in good shape but I think I can prove I can be better than last year." Frolik came to Chicago after tallying two consecutive 21-goal seasons for the Florida Panthers. He hasn't scored 21 goals in the past three seasons combined. Frolik admitted last season that he was pressing. "The more you want to score the more it kind of goes against you. I just have to try to forget that and just play the game and try to be relaxed. I just want to play like the first two years (in Florida), and even better."
