Frk, a winger, plays for the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads, ranked seventh in the CHL, while Ouellet, a defenceman, plays in the same league with the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, ranked fifth.
The 19-year-old Frk has started the season operating on the Mooseheads’ second line with undrafted forwards Matthew Boudreau and Luca Ciampini. He also mans the point on the top power-play unit alongside San Jose Sharks draft choice Konrad Abeltshauser.
The Mooseheads are led by two 17-year-old forwards expected to go high in the 2013 NHL draft in Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin.
Frk, who missed three months last season with a concussion, has a goal and two assists in four games along with six shots and a plus-1.
Ouellet, meanwhile, captains the Armada and dominates the club’s blue-line minutes alongside over-ager Samuel Carrier, a former Washington Capitals prospect.
Ouellet, who had 60 points last season while helping Blainville-Boisbriand to a third overall finish, has tallied a goal and three assists through four games this season.
Five other Red Wings draft picks are playing in the CHL — including red-hot defenceman Ryan Sproul of the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds — but their teams are not in the top-10 ranking.
Following is this week’s statistical report.
