Former Spokane Chief forward Zach Fischer has signed an AHL contract with the Stockton Heat, the affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames, as announced by the Heat on July 1.
Fischer, 20, joined the Chiefs this past season after being acquired from the Medicine Hat Tigers on October 19, 2017. Fischer contributed 35 points (21 goals, 14 assists) in 43 regular season games with the Chiefs, and added two points (one goal, one assist) in seven WHL Playoffs games. Fischer ended his WHL career with 198 games played, and totaled 68 goals, 55 assists, and 123 points in addition to racking up 298 penalties in minutes.
Fischer joins a Flames organization that recently added former Chief Derek Ryan after naming former Chiefs’ Head Coach Bill Peters to the same post last month.
