A year of experience has done wonders for 19-year-old Liam Fraser as the Calgary product has already matched his entire output from his rookie campaign after just seven games this season.
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Fraser got into 38 games with the Kindersley Klippers a year ago and during that maiden Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League season he collected three goals and set up three others.
Fast forward a year and Fraser has equalled those numbers thanks to a six-game point streak after being held off the scoresheet in the opening game of the season.
Fraser has shown in the past that once he is accustomed to a higher level of hockey, putting up impressive numbers will follow.
Prior to joining the Klippers, Fraser completed his midget career with a 24-point performance with the Midget AAA Calgary Buffaloes. This followed a season that saw him collect 35 points in 25 games with the Midget AA Rangers and also saw him get a four-game stint with the Buffaloes where he was held off the scoresheet.
At the start of his midget career, Fraser was dominant at the minor midget level recording 64 points in 36 games and again he saw brief duty with the higher Midget AA team collecting three points in four games.
If the trend continues the Klippers should benefit nicely from Fraser’s adjustment to junior hockey and with one more season of eligibility remaining after this one that only bodes well for the future as well.
