Fischer penned a two-year, $2 million contract with Arizona on Monday.
Fischer is coming off a disappointing campaign in which he registered a mere six goals and three assists in 56 appearances. It was the lowest point total for the 22-year-old winger since his rookie campaign in which he played in a mere seven outings. The Chicago native will look to get back to his previous form when he tallied 33 points in 79 appearances back in 2017-18.
Fischer scored a goal on his only shot and had two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Dallas.
Fischer's shot on goal might as well be listed in quotation marks; he was credited with a goal after Ilya Lyubushkin's shot bounced off a Dallas defender and then off of Fischer and into the net. Fischer had been mired in a 22-game goal drought and hadn't scored since Dec. 8, so he'll take the goal and run. In his first three full NHL seasons, the 22-year-old has seen his point totals drop from 33 in 2017-18 to 18 in 2018-19 to nine this year.
Fischer has served as a healthy scratch in three straight games.
Even when Fischer has been in the lineup this season, he's averaged a mere 11:23 of ice time. The winger has registered five goals and three helpers in 42 appearances and could be looking for a fresh start heading into the trade deadline.
Fischer scored a goal on five shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over Chicago.
Fischer got the Coyotes on the board 11 minutes into the first period with Chicago leading 2-0. The goal was his fifth of the season and his fourth in the last nine games. Fischer had scored only once in his first 22 games. He still sees limited minutes in a bottom-six role, but the production spike has been nice to see.
Fischer potted a goal on four shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers.
Fischer's tally in the second period tied the game at two, and Vinnie Hinostroza scored 1:33 later to put the Coyotes ahead. Fischer has scored in consecutive games, giving him three goals and an assist in 24 appearances this season. The 22-year-old winger has added 52 hits and 39 shots on goal with a plus-7 rating.
Fischer scored his first goal of the season in Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Capitals.
The 22-year-old managed only one assist through the first 16 games, but he finally lit the lamp only 10 seconds into the second period, albeit barely -- Ilya Samsonov initially appeared to reach back and make the save, but the puck was ruled to have just gotten over the line. Fischer also added three shots, three hits and a plus-2 rating to his ledger, but his role on the Coyotes' fourth line gives him little opportunity for consistent fantasy value.
Fischer has only recorded one assist in the first nine games of the 2019-20 season.
The 22-year-old has averaged 11:50 per night through the season's first nine contests, sitting out just one game in the process. Playing predominantly on Arizona's fourth line, Fischer does not deserve fantasy consideration.
The Coyotes recalled Fischer from AHL Tucson on Wednesday.
Arizona sent Fischer to the minors Tuesday, but that was simply a paper transaction that was made to manipulate the salary cap. However, the 22-year-old winger, who notched 11 goals and 18 points in 71 games last campaign, is currently on the outside looking in in terms of a spot in the Coyotes' top 12, so he may start the season as a healthy scratch Thursday against Anaheim.
Fischer was reassigned to AHL Tucson on Tuesday, Richard Morin of Arizona Republic reports.
Fischer was beat out by Barrett Hayton for the last forward spot on the roster and will likely be a top threat for Tucson. Last campaign, the Chicago native produced 18 points in 71 NHL games for Arizona. Fischer will likely be one of the first call-ups should injuries arise within the forward group.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fischer (lower body) will suit up for Saturday's game against the Flyers unless he experiences a "last-minute setback," Craig Morgan of NHL.com 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.
Fischer (lower body) is considered day-to-day, Craig Morgan of NHL.com 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.
