Frost notched his first pro point on October 18, 2019 as part of a three assist game against the Binghamton Devils.

Drafted in the first round (#27) of the 2017 NHL draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, Frost played four seasons in the OHL with the Soo Greyhounds prior to turning pro and was sensational in his final two seasons.
