He added 8 goals and 8 assists for 16 points in 20 playoff games as the Majors eventually lost the OHL Championship in 7 games to Owen Sound.

Flick tied for second on the Majors with 2 goals, both of which were game-winners, and had 1 assist in 5 Memorial Cup games.
2011-12: Flick split his first pro season between AHL Rockford and Toledo in the ECHL. After skating in one October game with the IceHogs, he was sent to Toledo and played in 17 games with the Walleye. He returned to Rockford at the beginning of December and finished the season in the AHL. In 45 games with Rockford he scored 7 goals with 6 assists and was plus-two with 91 penalty minutes. Flick scored 4 goals with 6 assists in 17 games with the Walleye and was minus-two with 43 penalty minutes. Neither Rockford nor Toledo made the playoffs in their respective leagues.
Flick brings size at 6’2 and good checking ability. Though he does not project as much of a scorer, he possesses a decent set of hands and a high hockey IQ.
Flick earned an NHL contract from Chicago after splitting time as a rookie in ECHL Toledo and the AHL with Rockford. He is penciled into a bottom six center spot in Rockford to begin the 2012-13 season but neither an expanded role in Rockford nor another stint in Toledo are out of the question.
Flick was dealt by the Chicago Blackhawks to the Boston Bruins at the 2013 NHL trade deadline in a deal that sent Max Sauve to the Blackhawks.
