2010-11: Hunter Fejes played in the Upper Midwest Elite League in the fall and skated for Shattuck-St. Mary’s in the winter season. Fejes skated in 49 games and scored 14 goals with 14 assists and 12 penalty minutes. Shattuck captured the US Tier 1 U18 National Championship.

2011-12: Fejes was the second-leading scorer for Shattuck in his second season in Faribault. In 55 games he scored 38 goals with 40 assists and had 20 penalty minutes. In six games at the Tier 1 U18 Championship he scored 4 goals with 4 assists as Shattuck again won a national championship. Fejes committed to playing at Colorado College in 2012-13. He was ranked 91st amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Fejes made the jump directly from high school to college hockey – skating in 41 games for Colorado College as an 18-year-old freshman. Spending much of the season on the Tigers’ third line with freshman center Cody Bradley he scored 8 goals with 6 assists and was -3 with 8 penalty minutes. After finishing eighth in the WCHA, Colorado College won four straight tournament games to reach the WCHA Broadmoor Trophy Championship game but missed the NCAA Tournament after falling to Wisconsin, 3-2.

2013-14: Fejes struggled throughout his sophomore campaign at Colorado College. He managed only a single assist with 29 penalty minutes in 26 games. Fejes was shuffled throughout the lineup and missed significant time in February with a lower-body injury. Colorado College finished seventh in the first-year NCHC and lost to North Dakota in  a three-game quarterfinal series.

2014-15: Fejes was the third-leading scorer for Colorado College in what was a a rebuilding season for the Tigers under first-year head coach Mike Haviland. He scored 5 goals with 14 assists and was -20 with 31 penalty minutes in 35 games.  Colorado College finished last in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference, winning six games, and was swept by North Dakota in the NCHC quarterfinals.

Talent Analysis

Fejes was regarded as a slick offensive player with some nice one-on-one skill coming out of high school hockey. He has added some size and strength during his time at Colorado College and has shown a willingness to engage opponents. Fejes possesses good outside speed and a willingness to drive to the net.


Fejes enters his senior season at Colorado College in 2015-16 and will need to build off last year's 19-point season to earn an entry-level contract with the Coyotes. Fejes overcame injury concerns and finally lived up to the billing as a scorer for a team that struggled to score goals. He will be relied upon as a leader and go-to scorer if the Tigers are to get their program headed back in the right direction. Long-term his size and determination suggests Fejes has some potential as a third or fourth line power forward with some offensive elements to his game.

The Arizona Coyotes have actively addressed the composition of their prospect pool since the 2013-14 trade deadline. A year ago, there was a logjam of talented defensemen throughout their pipeline. At the deadline, general manager Dave Maloney traded David Rundblad to the Chicago Blackhawks. At the 2014 NHL Draft, the Coyotes grabbed seven forwards while only selecting two defensemen, both in the late rounds.
