Trent Frederic spoke with the media for the first time yesterday after signing a new two-year deal with the Boston Bruins. In his chat with the media he pointed out a few things that he wants to work on along with saying that he had a mystery illness.
Freddy said that one of the things he wants to improve over the summer was his skating. Judging from comments that other players have made, skating is a hugely important skill that sometimes seems overlooked in hockey players. Like we all know they can skate but skating well be a challenge even for players who have felt home on the ice from the age of 2 or 3. What does good skating involve for a hockey player? Well, actually, a lot of body parts being in the right spots.
It probably pays to have a skating coach because there is a lot involved i becoming a better skater.
So, that will be a bunch of work for the young forward.
He also said that he wants to become more confident while handling the puck. Sounds like he has his summer full up with plans.

He clarified that a mystery illness that included a high fever for a few days kept him from the lineup around the time of the trade deadline. It was worse than when he had COVID last summer, which kept him from playing in the bubble.
