Chase Schaber

It was a signing that Flyers' fans had been hoping for, and on Thursday morning Chase Schaber's return to Kirkcaldy was finally confirmed which saw a fantastic response from the Flyers fans welcoming him back. 

The 28 year old Canadian will enter his 4th season with Fife and will be hoping to make more of the new season than the last which saw Schaber restricted to just 36 games due to lower body injury.

Last month Chase underwent surgery and is already working through an intensive rehab programme which will see him return to Fife fully fit and healthy for pre-season.

Head Coach Todd Dutiaume is excited to welcome back a healthy Schaber as his impact on the team is unmatched "Speaking to Chase I know he is excited to get back in the gym and back onto the ice.

"Last season was extremely taxing on Chase and he is looking to turn the page on the injury. I can't overstate the impact Chase has on the ice and his team mates.

"With regards to Chase's rehab and recovery, I have spoken with all the medical personnel that has been involved and we expect Chase to return to Kirkcaldy fully fit and ready to perform at his best."

Schaber spent 5 seasons playing his junior hockey in the Western Hockey League, splitting his time between the Calgary Hitmen and Kamloop Blazers. During his time in the WHL, Schaber iced in 277 regular season games, scoring 68 goals and 102 assists, plus 273 penalty minutes.

The 5’11, forward has also iced with AHL side Oklahoma City Barons, whilst on loan from ECHL side Bakersfield Condors.

As well as playing in Bakersfield in the ECHL, Schaber has had spells with Idaho Steelheads and Norfolk Admirals. During his time in the ECHL, Chase has totalled 161 games, scoring 41 goals and 58 assists.

In his 3 season in the Elite Ice Hockey League with Fife, Schaber has tallied 65 goals and 68 assists across 160 games, and it is that elite level performance that made him a priority re-signing for head coach Todd Dutiaume.

"Schabes knows he has the capability of having an influence in any situation he chooses, I've had lengthy discussions with him regarding this and have watched him develop."
