Future Watch: Christian Fischer Rookie Hockey Cards, Coyotes – Christian Fischer was selected by the Arizona Coyotes with the 32nd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. The Chicago native played for the Chicago Mission when he was 16, and then the National Team Development Program leading up to his draft year. In his last year with the National team he scored 31 goals in 66 games. Some of the credit can go to his teammates. That team had Auston Matthews (Leafs), Matthew Tkachuk (Flames) and Clayton Keller (Coyotes) to name a few. That year he won his second-consecutive gold medal and that really helped put his name on the map.
In 2015-16 he had 90 points in 66 games for the Windsor Spitfires in the OHL. That year he had 40 goals. He got a cup of coffee in the AHL that season as well getting three points in six games. The next year he was ready for the AHL. First, he got a taste of NHL life but he still got sent down. When he was sent to the AHL he concentrated on his game with the Tuscon Roadrunners. He won AHL player of the week honors and got called up in January of 2017. He had goals in his first two games but eventually was sent back to the AHL. For that season, he managed to get 47 points in 57 games. He got three goals in seven NHL games.
Christian Fischer has NHL licensed rookie cards in all current 2017-18 Upper Deck hockey products including: MVP, Artifacts, O-Pee-Chee.
Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:
At 6′-2″, 215 pounds he has a nice blend of power and finesse. He’s a winger who can dig in the corners as easily as scoring a skill goal. He has made the Coyotes roster out of camp and will be reunited with Keller. This could be a big season for the 20-year-old.
