In 2 Cedar Rapids RoughRider video games on December sixteenth and seventeenth, Fitzgerald posted 6 assists, 4 pictures on objective, and a +2 score.
Fitzgerald’s offensive expertise are on full show in these video highlights from these video games. The primary sequence is on the RoughRiders’ energy play. Fitzgerald (#19) skates like a ahead, defending the puck together with his physique, going robust to the web, and sliding a wrister beneath the defenseman’s leg on objective. The ensuing rebound is transformed for a objective. On the second scoring play, he dekes the defender and snaps a robust wrister from the blue line. The puck is redirected for a objective.

After profitable seasons within the Nationwide Collegiate Improvement Convention (Boston Benefit), then the North American Hockey League (New Jersey Titans), Ring has excelled with the Sioux Falls Stampede. Ring leads the USHL in energy play assists (12). He leads the Stampede in assists (17) and energy play factors (3 PPG, 12 PPA).
Ring can be a constant scorer. He has scored no less than 1 level in 75% of his 27 video games this season. A scout from Impartial Zone evaluated Ring throughout a December seventeenth sport between Sioux Falls and the Fargo Power:
“Finds the areas of the ice within the offensive zone the place he can get pucks on web. Filters into the slot space untouched and when receiving passes will get the puck to the web shortly with a flick of the wrist (and energy behind it). Scored the primary 2 objectives of the sport for the Stampede in very related vogue. Each might have regarded like rubbish whack in objectives however realistically each displayed a excessive talent set. For instance he filtered into the web entrance space untouched obtained to a unfastened puck and made somewhat further transfer to deceive the goaltender and rating [both goals were the same essentially].”
It was Ring’s first multi-goal of the season. Listed below are the video highlights:
