He scored 4 goals with 4 assists and was -1 with 69 PMs as the Majors finished second in their division and reached the second round of the playoffs. He skated in 10 of 11 playoff games for the Majors and scored 1 goal with 1 assist and finished -1 with 14 PMs.

2009-10: In his second season with the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors, Flick scored 15 goals, 19 assists for 34 points in 65 games. The centerman added a team-leading 157 PIMs during the regular season. In 16 playoff games, he recorded 2 goals, 2 assists, and 44 PIMs. Flick was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the fourth round, 120th overall, of the 2010 NHL Draft.

2010-11: Flick finished fourth on Mississauga with 27 goals and 57 points in 68 games for the Majors. He led the team by a wide margin with 168 PIMs in the regular season. 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. As Memorial Cup hosts, however, the Majors still had a good run in the CHL's postseason tournament, falling in the title game to the Saint John Sea Dogs. 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.

2012-13: Flick spent his second pro season in the AHL — skating in 51 games for Chicago's AHL affiliate in Rockford and then finishing the season with Providence after being acquired by the Bruins from the Blackhawks in an April 2013 trade. He scored 3 goals with 2 assists and was -11 with 97 penalty minutes with the IceHogs. In five games with Providence he had no points and was an even plus/minus with 7 penalty minutes. Providence finished first in the Atlantic Division and reached the second round in the playoffs.Flick did not play in any playoff games.

Expected by many to be among the top teams in the AHL this season, the Rockford IceHogs have put together another up-and-down start to a season. Even with several players on the roster who are expected to be full-time NHL players when the season begins, the team has managed a 17-16-1-1 record so far in 2012-13. There have been good stretches – four separate stretches have seen the 'Hogs rattle off at least three consecutive wins – but they are always accompanied by times when the team has struggled to come away with any points in the standings.
