Fishing for success

Streatham Ice Hockey club are pleased to announce that Steven Fisher is returning to the club for his fourth season.

The 29 year old ended last season as our top British point scorer with 20 goals in 32 games.

Born in Newport, Fisher learnt his trade in Cardiff and came through the famed junior development system before making his senior debut as a teenager in 2004.

Still the NIHL Devils all-time leading scorer, Fisher joined us in 2013 following spells in Bristol and also Swindon Wildcats in the EPL.

'Fish is a natural goalscorer and you always need one of those' said Head Coach Nick Chinn.

'His points record speaks for itself and his composure in front of net is something that can be hard to find at this level. He has been in London a while now and has settled in the area so we are looking for him to improve on last season and keep lighting the lamp.'

Fisher joined Streatham whilst the team was in Brixton and formed a great partnership with former Cardiff team mate Sean Scarbrough as he scored a goal per game average in his first season with 31 to his name!

The Welshman is happy to drop the gloves when needed and is strong on the puck, whilst offering clinical finishing in front of net.

He is already 8th in the all-time goal scorers for Streatham trailing 7th place Kurt Wickenheiser, and only 13 away from the 200 point mark!

'Last year was a bit frustrating by the end and the whole team felt we underperformed' said Fisher.

'Pre-season has started already for most of us with some gym work and with the team we are putting together, we should be in good shape come the first puck drop in September.'

Steven will continue to wear the number 20 jersey and you can sponsor his home or away jersey for only £100.

You get to keep it at the end of the season, however as they are so popular we are going to put all interested names into a hat and draw out the winner over the next 48 hours.
