History

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. He managed only a single assist in 26 games. By most accounts, his effort level was adequate. However, Fejes was shuffled throughout the lineup and never settled in with a single for an extended stretch. He also missed significant time in February with a lower-body injury.

 

Talent Analysis

A slick offensive player with some nice one-on-one skill, Fejes possesses good outside speed and a willingness to drive to the net.

 

Future

Fejes will return to Colorado College for his Junior season. With his skillset, Fejes should be able to break through and establish himself as a legitimate scoring threat for the Tigers.

The Phoenix Coyotes may have the most unbalanced prospect pool in the league. On defense, they have more legitimate players than places to put them. At forward, they may be forced to convert their young centers to address the scarcity of talent on both wings.

The 2013-14 season will be a “put-up or shut-up” campaign for Phoenix Coyotes prospects at all levels. This season will determine whether Andy Miele belongs in the NHL and whether players like Brendan Burke and Samuel Fejes are even legitimate prospects.

Thanks to most of their NCAA prospects recently making the jump to professional hockey, the Phoenix Coyotes do not have a large number of European and collegiate prospects. Fortunately for them, the ones they do have continue to get better with each passing season. From adjusting in their freshman seasons to being introduced to the European professional leagues, most of these prospects enjoyed successful seasons in 2012-13.

The Phoenix Coyotes prospect pool is loaded with players who are already playing professional hockey. Most of these players are playing for the Coyotes’ AHL affiliate team, the Portland Pirates. With the Pirates recently clinching a playoff spot, these prospects will gain valuable post-season experience early on in their careers.

As has been the case over the past few years, the Phoenix Coyotes prospect pool is built around their strong group of defensive prospects. Elite talents like Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson quickly became franchise cornerstones and gave way to a new crop led by the likes of first-round studs Brandon Gormley, David Rundblad, and Connor Murphy.
