MICHAEL MCNICHOLAS: FIFE SIGN NEW SHINING STAR

Fife Flyers have signed new American forward Michael McNicholas for the 2021/22 Elite Ice Hockey League season.

 

McNicholas makes the trip across the Atlantic for the first time and will leave his current club, the Tulsa Oilers who play in the ECHL.

 

The 27-year-old from Reno, Nevada has racked up an impressive score card in the ECHL. In his first full season in 2018/19 he played in the league with the Maine Mariners and played 65 times and scored 53 points.

 

His second season with Maine Mariners was also fruitful with 60 appearances and 38 points. In season 2020/21 he played with three clubs: Utah Grizzlies, Indy Fuel and Tulsa Oilers – scoring 25 points in 51 appearances.

 

Before joining the ECHL McNicholas learned his trade with the University of New Hampshire’s NCAA side.

 

Commenting, Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume said:

 

“Michael is going to provide a solid offensive punch for the squad. I spoke to him this week and he is thrilled to be part of the club and excited to get here.

 

“It is important that, moving on from previous seasons, we have had guys that are reliable offensively and Michael will fall into this category and be relied on heavily in all offensive situations.”
