  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Heating up with helpers

    Fischer tacked on an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken.

    Fischer has four assists in the last five games to easily qualify as a season-best stretch. With two goals, 11 assists and a plus-10 rating through 52 contests, the versatile forward seemingly is doing all that is asked of him as a penalty-killing specialist in the bottom six. Following his one-year, $1.125 million deal with the Wings, Fischer could hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Supplies assist in loss

    Fischer notched an assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.

    Fischer helped out on a J.T. Compher tally in the second period. This was Fischer's third straight game with an assist after he had just one helper in all of January. The 26-year-old is at 12 points, 60 shots on net, 69 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 50 appearances. While he's showing more on offense, he's still limited to a bottom-six role that will make maintaining his scoring rate difficult.

He's at 11 points, 56 shots on net, 64 hits, 28 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 49 outings overall.

  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Hurt in Saturday's contest

    Fischer (upper body) sustained an injury in the second period of Saturday's game versus the Devils.

    Fischer collided with teammate Jeff Petry, and both players' nights ended with that accidental run-in. The 26-year-old Fischer should be considered day-to-day for now, though he appeared to get the worst of the collision. If he can't play Wednesday versus the Wild, Austin Czarnik may enter the lineup in a fourth-line role.

  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Collects helper Monday

    Fischer recorded an assist in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Stars.

Fischer has two points over his last five games, but he may benefit from more ice time in the short term. He's at seven points, 32 shots on net, 31 hits, 11 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 26 appearances.

  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Pots first goal of 2023-24

    Fischer scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canadiens.

    The 26-year-old winger got credit for Detroit's first goal of the night late in the second period when Michael Rasmussen's point-blank shot on Cayden Primeau caromed into the air, deflecting off Fischer's knuckles and over the goalie's shoulder. The former Coyote had just one helper through his first 11 games as a Red Wing this season, but Fischer's now pocketed a goal and an assist over the last two contests.

  • Red Wings' Christian Fischer: Questionable for upcoming tilt

    Fischer (upper body) is questionable to suit up in Saturday's home game against the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Fischer sustained the injury Thursday, which ended up as a 2-0 loss to the Panthers. The Red Wings might recall a forward from AHL Grand Rapids or dress an extra defenseman, but either way, Fischer is off the radar in fantasy leagues given that he's on the fourth line with a single assist representing his point total through 11 contests.
