History

After appearing in one game in the 2003-04 WHL season, Fuller played in 55 games for the Prince George Cougars in 04-05, scoring eight points and amassing 66 penalty minutes. In 2005-06, he scored seven points while gathering 87 penalty minutes and cementing his role in the WHL as a solid middleweight enforcer when called upon.

Talent Analysis
He’s never going to be an offensive contributor at the NHL level and will always need to do the necessary dirty work to keep a job in the professional ranks. He has decent speed and okay defensive instincts. But most importantly, he is a very tough player willing to take on anybody to stick up for a teammate or try to change the momentum of a game. He will need to work significantly on every facet of his game.
Future
Fuller has fourth line potential as a kamikaze-type player who mixes it up and wreaks havoc for the opposition’s defense in their own zone and is willing to drop the gloves. He will return to Prince George this year and then try to work his way through the professional leagues, most likely starting with the ECHL unless he sees significant development this season.
