Good morning all and what a good morning it has been so far as the Arnold Clark Mercedes benz Fife Flyers announced the return of Chase Schaber.
The 27 year old Canadian who has played in Fife for the past two seasons has signed up again for his third year with the club.
Chase started out in the AMBHL where he played three years for the Red Deer Chiefs, he then played three seasons with the Calgary Hitmen in the WHL and during that time he also played six games in the Canadian Pacific league under 17’s, after leaving Calgary he played a further two years in the WHL with the Kamloops Blazers before a year at Lethbridge university.
Chace then moved the ECHL with the Idaho Steelheads then two further years in the league with Bakersfield Condors where in his second year there he was given an A on his jersey also during his second year in Bakersfield he played in 13 AHL games for Oklahoma City Barons, then in 2015-2016 season he played for Norfolk Admirals.
For the past two season the charismatic Canadian has played in Kirkcaldy for the Fife Flyers. In his first season he scored 37 points in 41 games and last year bettered that 61 points in 55 games. From the correspondence today Schaber has signed with the Flyers for a further three years taking him to 30. Let’s hope for another season like last year from him. What do think Flyers fans?
Chase had this to say on his return
“I have really enjoyed the past two seasons with the Flyers and it was great to be part of the Conference winning team last year. It’s awesome to be back for a third season, and to be a part of the 80th anniversary season. We are looking to improve on where we left off last year and keep going in our hunt for silverware.
The fans in Fife are a huge asset and their loyal support is something that really gets the team hyped up. I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice next month and playing in front of the fans.”
Head Coach Todd Dutiaume added
“Chase was a priority to have back. After a successful 30 goal season we feel he has even more to offer. His strength on the puck as well as the ability to find the net in key situations makes him a very valuable asset on the ice. He also has the ability to control the mood of our room and we’ll be looking to him to continue to steer and guide this team on to further successes.”
