In the pros: Frischmon heads to Austria

The Graz 99ers, a team competing in the Austrian league, signed former Tiger Trevor Frischmon to a tryout agreement.

Frischmon, 31, joins the 99ers organization after spending five seasons as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets and one as a New York Islander. The Ham Lake, Minn. native was a member of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League last season, and recorded 28 points in 69 games before an injury. The year before that, with the Springfield Falcons, Frischmon had 29 points (four goals, 25 assists) in 80 games.

The 6-foot, 200-pound center has appeared in 396 career AHL games, recording 130 points (32 goals, 98 assists) and 221 penalty minutes between Springfield, Bridgeport and the Syracuse Crunch. Frischmon made his NHL debut during the 2009-10 season with Columbus and played in three games.
