Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Breaks 12-game slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer registered a pair of assists in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

Fischer had gone 12 games without a point, finding himself in the press box for four games in the middle of that run. He's regressed from the 33 points he posted last year, with 11 goals and seven assists in 67 appearances in this campaign. He does have 112 hits and 110 shots to his name, making Fischer an option in deeper formats with those categories.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Quiet in February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer has just one assist in six games in February.

Playing in the Coyotes' bottom six, Fischer has had to make his mark on games in different ways. In the same six-game span, he has 17 hits, giving him 91 for the season in 56 games. He neither scores nor hits enough to make a significant fantasy impact.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Fetches two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer produced a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

The points from Fischer took place in succession during the second period, giving the Chicago native his first multi-point game since Oct. 23. While the 'Yotes continue making moves to try and ignite the offense, the fact remains that this club only averages 2.61 goals per game -- 28th in the NHL -- with Fischer hardly moving the needle as the owner of 14 points (11 goals, three assists) through 46 contests.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Picks up assist in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer garnered an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 4-3 road win over the Wild.

The 'Yotes rallied back with three unanswered goals in the third period to steal a key road win over the cross-conference club, with Fischer contributing a secondary apple on Michael Grabner's tally. Despite the Coyotes trading Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini to the Blackhawks for Nick Schmaltz earlier in the week, Fischer only saw 11:57 of ice time in the most recent game. In the absence of sufficient ice time, we wouldn't recommend adding Arizona's second-round (32nd overall) pick from the 2015 draft unless you're in an extremely deep league.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Delivers hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer scored three goals in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Fischer paced himself with a goal in each period to make his stat line four goals in eight games. Each score came at even strength without the aid of an empty net. It's the 21-year-old's first career hat trick.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Breaks six-game drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

Fischer's goal snapped a six-game pointless streak. The 21-year-old has been getting plenty of work with the Coyotes, logging substantial power-play minutes while firing 18 shots on net, so Fischer was due. He's currently flanking a young second line with Dylan Strome (21) at center and Brendan Perlini (22) at left wing.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Gets on board against Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer opened the scoring for the Coyotes in Saturday's 4-1 road win over the Canucks to finish the preseason.

Fischer's projected for a third-line role behind 2018 Calder Trophy finalist Clayton Keller and newcomer Michael Grabner on the right wing. As long as he's in the bottom six, it might be tough for Fischer to average more than two minutes of ice time on the power play as he did last year (2:10), but then again, Alex Galchenyuk is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, so Fischer could seize early opportunities to shine with the man advantage on the heels of a 2017-18 output comprised of 15 goals, 18 assists and eight power-play points over 79 games.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

Fischer had to breathe a sigh of relief after putting one past Calgary's Jon Gillies in Tuesday's victory, as it marked the 20-year-old winger's first goal in 31 contests. The 2015 second-round pick has enjoyed a solid rookie season, totaling 14 goals and 31 points in 77 contests. He'll look to take the next step in his development in 2018-19.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Two helpers in win over Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- during Monday's 6-1 win over Chicago.

The 20-year-old winger has quietly put together a nice offensive stretch with six goals, six assists and 53 shots through his past 20 games. He's also averaging 2:42 of power-play time per contest during that span. Obviously, those numbers aren't moving fantasy mountains, but there are deep settings where Fischer can help. Looking forward, there's some long-term upside for keeper/dynasty owners, too.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Tentatively set to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer (lower body) will suit up for Saturday's game against the Flyers unless he experiences a "last-minute setback," Craig Morgan of reports.

Fischer's lower-body ailment is believed to be a minor issue, but pregame warmups will afford him the chance to confirm that he's good to go. This is the American winger's first full season at the highest level, and he's shown flashes of dominance on the way to 23 points (13 goals, 10 assists) in 51 games. If those numbers don't seem impressive, think again -- he's done this on a youthful Coyotes team with the worst goal differential in the league at minus-63.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Sidelined with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer (lower body) is considered day-to-day, Craig Morgan of reports.

Fischer was held out of Thursday's contest in Minnesota and a lower-bodh injury appears to be the reason. The 20-year-old rookie winger has 13 goals and 23 points for the Coyotes this season. He could be back as soon as Saturday against Philadelphia.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Contributes two points to stun Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer collected a power-play goal and an assist Saturday, coming up huge in a 5-2 road win over the Blues.

Fischer's in the minority of regulars with more goals (13) than assists (eight) on the season. However, he's barely averaging two shots per game for the lowly Coyotes, which has led to tempered expectations in the fantasy realm. Still, the future is extremely bright for the American winger, who's been deployed heavily on the man advantage in his first full season.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Impressing head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer's competitive drive and willingness to battle in the tough areas of the ice have impressed head coach Rick Tocchet. "He's grasping the importance of holding onto pucks, going to the net, being a net-front presence, being a better wall guy. There's not a lot of guys like that in the league that can also skate," Tocchet noted, Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

The rookie has recorded five goals through his past 11 contests, and his 12 tallies on the season rank second among all Coyotes. Obviously, he's far from being a universal fantasy asset, and Fischer's 1.72 points per 60 minutes is hardly an encouraging mark. However, he's clearly caught Tocchet's eye, so his long-term value in keeper/dynasty settings could climb in the second half of the season.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Pots overtime winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer scored the overtime-winning goal Thursday against Nashville. The final score was 3-2.

Other than an ugly minus-13 rating, the rookie has been making the most of a bleak situation in Arizona, as he's now up to 11 goals, 18 points and 80 shots on net. Fischer has averaged a smidgen over 15 minutes of ice time -- including 2:24 with the man advantage -- and is currently skating on the team's second line with Max Domi and Clayton Keller, which is a nice fantasy setup.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Collects two assists Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer racked up a pair of helpers in Saturday's win over the Devils.

Fischer's been inconsistent this season, but his seven goals and 13 points through 27 contests are impressive. The 20-year-old has been removed from the power play for the time being and saw just 11:29 of ice time Saturday, but his current linemates are Anthony Duclair and Dylan Strome, so expect him to continue producing. Fischer is putting together a strong rookie campaign on a lackluster Yotes squad.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Scores overtime winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer had an early assist and the game-winning goal in a 3-2 win over Los Angeles in overtime.

Fischer has truly been feast or famine, as he's followed up each multi-goal game with three straight games where he failed to get on the scoresheet. He's got to get this fixed quickly to make his owners happy. The young forward is currently too inconsistent to trust in most settings.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Records first career multi-point showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer collected a power-play goal, an assist and three shots during Thursday's 5-4 win over Montreal.

The 20-year-old winger is up to a respectable five goals and eight points through 19 games, and he projects to remain a semi-regular offensive contributor because of his power-play role. Fischer is averaging 2:04 of ice time per game with the man advantage and has three power-play goals. Still, he needs to be a more consistent scorer to warrant attention in the majority of seasonal settings.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Scores in loss to Caps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer scored on his only shot during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to Washington.

The tally brings Fischer to four goals and an assist through 14 games, and he's also averaging just 13:47 of ice time (1:45 on the power play). Receiving minutes with the man advantage should enable the 20-year-old winger to continue chipping in offensively. However, he's probably at least a year or two away from being a reliable fantasy asset in most settings. Fischer does offer long-term potential in deep keeper/dynasty leagues, though.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Takes minus-2 rating in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer received a minus-2 rating through just 10:03 of ice time during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders.

After a promising AHL showing last year (20 goals and 47 points through 57 games), Fischer has a chance to stick with the Coyotes for the majority of 2017-18. Additionally, he owns the long-term upside to develop into a throwback power-forward type. However, with just two goals and a minus-5 rating through the first eight games of the campaign, he'll likely need to provide more offense to secure a meaningful spot in the lineup. As a result, he's off the fantasy radar in the majority of seasonal setups right now.

Coyotes' Christian Fischer: Power-play goal in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fischer potted a power-play goal in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Ducks.

Fischer's first career power-play point gave his team a 4-1 lead, but it was all Anaheim from there. With four goals in his first eight NHL games, the 20-year-old winger has already shown he's got what it takes to compete at the highest level.
