Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ron Fischer
Defenceman Ron Fischer played 18 games with the Buffalo Sabres in the early 1980s. He was a fine skater and playmaker who also toiled in the minors before finding his niche in the German League.

Born in Merrit, British Columbia, Fischer played two years at the University of Calgary. After scoring 31 points in 29 games during the 1980-81 season, he was signed as a free agent by the Buffalo Sabres. In 1981-82 the young rearguard registered 7 assists in 15 games but only made it into three contests the next year. He contributed plenty of offense from the blueline while spending most of his first three pro seasons with the AHL's Rochester Americans.

In 1984, Fischer travelled across the Atlantic to play for the Riessersee club of Germany. He excelled for two seasons there before joining Sb Rosenheim. Fischer played ten seasons for that club and obtained West German citizenship. He represented West Germany at the 1988 Calgary Olympics, the 1992 Albertville Games as well as the World Championships in 1989 and 1992. He retired in 1996 after one one of the longest careers by a Canadian-born player in Europe.
