This will be Frank's first AHL action since the Lynnwood, Wash. native played in 12 games with the San Antonio Rampage after finishing out his eligibility at Western Michigan in the 2008-2009 season, collecting one assist and accumulating 35 penalty minutes.
As a rookie in 2009-2010, Frank led the Las Vegas Wranglers with 165 penalty minutes and had a goal and six assists for seven points.
