Marshall Frappier is getting another shot at playing in the Ontario Hockey League. The 2000 birth year goalie, who had been tending twine for the French River Rapids of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League this season, has had his OHL rights transferred from the Sudbury Wolves to the Kingston Frontenacs, as Hockey News North was first to report.

Frappier, who spent the 2017-2018 OHL season with Sudbury as a backup to starting goalie Jake McGrath, had slipped to fourth on the Wolves depth chart in 2018-2019.

In going to Kingston, the big goalie will take over from the injured Ryan Dugas on the Frontenacs roster. Kingston gave Sudbury a sixth-round draft pick in exchange for Frappier.

Frappier was playing well for French River this NOJHL season on a young Rapids team that is in last place in the East Division. In 22 games with French River, Frappier had a 3.25 goals-against average and .925 save percentage to go along with a record of 9-11-0.
