L/A Fighting Spirit captain Fish makes college commitment
March 15, 2016
The L/A Fighting Spirit, proud members of the NA3EHL, have announced that forward and team captain David Fish has committed to play college hockey for Niagara University in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Division I level.
Fish, 20, has played with the Fighting Spirit since the 2012-13 season. He has been a versatile addition to the organization, playing both forward and defense throughout his junior career. His dedication and coachability earned him a role as captain this year and is also reflected in his off-ice volunteer endeavors. He is a solid two-way forward who leads by example, works hard for all 60 minutes, and can contribute in all facets of the game.
During the 2015-16 season, the 5’11/175 lbs. native of Hudson Falls, NY, had 20 points in 43 regular season games, which included a +36 rating. Last season, Fish had 21 points in 41 regular season games.
“When Coach Brzeczkowski and I met David at the NA3EHL Showcase in Lockport, he was extremely excited about the prospect of continuing his hockey career into college. His game speaks for itself in that Fish is extremely humble, but leads with a quiet confidence,” said Niagara team recruiter Nate Miller. “We watched him play in a variety of situations, and his inherent hockey sense and straight-away speed make him an asset to any junior program. Off the ice, David volunteers his time to a variety of organizations, which makes him an excellent example of a student athlete at Niagara University. We look forward to seeing Fish’s contribution to the team.”
