Michael Frolík (Czech pronunciation: ; born February 17, 1988) is a Czech professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Frolík played two seasons in the Czech Extraliga for Rabat Kladno before being selected tenth overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers. While playing in Kladno, Frolík was constantly nicknamed The Baby Jágr due to his identical playing style and appearance to Jaromír Jágr, who also played for Kladno. To add to his overwhelming resemblance, Frolík, who cites Jágr as his role model, wore #68 at the Florida Panthers' rookie camp.

During the 2006–07 season, he played for Rimouski Océanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), where he wore #67. When he joined the Panthers for the 2008–09 season, he also wore #67.
