The Halifax Mooseheads are still working on getting Martin Frk into their 2010-11 lineup.

The Mooseheads used the third overall pick in last month’s Canadian Hockey League import draft to select the highly-touted Czech left-winger, but two weeks later still don’t have any guarantee he will report.

“Nothing new — (we’re) still working on things,” said Mooseheads general manager Cam Russell yesterday.

Frk apparently has contract issues in the Czech Republic, but agent Allan Walsh has yet to return phone messages to explain the situation.

The 17-year-old was one of the top scorers in the Czech under-20 league last season, piling up 28 goals and 27 assists for 56 points along with 184 penalty minutes in 39 games.

Russell has compared Frk to Boston Bruins legend Cam Neely.

His presence in the lineup, along with that of second overall QMJHL pick Luca Ciampini, will play a big part in the Mooseheads’ effort to turn things around following back-to-back last-place finishes.
