Jiri Fischer
(FIHSH-uhr, YIH-ree)
Number: 2
Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 229
Shoots: Left
Born: Jul 31, 1980
Birthplace: Horovice, Czech Republic
Drafted: DET / 1998 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 1st (25th overall)
The Red Wings’ top pick (first round, 25th overall) at the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Fischer skated in 305 games for Detroit before a heart condition forced the 6-foot-5, 225-pound defenseman into early retirement at the age of 26. Fischer helped the Red Wings capture the 2002 Stanley Cup and amassed 11G-49A-60-P-295PIM for the club during his all-too-brief playing career. On the international stage, Fisher helped the Czech Republic capture Gold at the 2005 IIHF World Championships and has recently served as an assistant coach for his home country at the last two IIHF World Junior Championships. In 2006, Detroit named Fischer their director of player development, a post he has held for the past six seasons.
