Mike Fisher returns to hockey! Okay not really, but with the 76th overall selection at the 2022 NHL Draft, the San Jose Sharks picked up Michael Fisher. A right-shot defenseman out of St. Mark’s School in the USHS-Prep league, Fisher stands at 6-foot-2 and 198-pounds and is committed to play for Northeastern in the upcoming season.
The team at EliteProspects had some very positive things to say about Fisher in their 2022 NHL Draft Guide:
“Simply put: Fisher may very well be the most dominant high school player we’ve scouted in three years of draft guide work at Elite Prospects. Certainly, he’s the most dynamic and offensively gifted one to cross our paths in this time — no doubt about that. Even Fisher’s most seemingly mundane puck touches often develop into scoring chances. In no phase of the game was this more apparent than the breakout. He would go deep into his zone for a retrieval and in the blink of an eye turn that anodyne play into a highlight-reel goal at the opposite end of the ice.”
By the way, Fisher skated with Mike Grier just two days before Sharks announced Grier as GM. Says he had no idea that was going to happen. Says he's a two-way D, emulates Mike Reilly
