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.

 

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, now a sophomore, will continue his career with Colorado College of the NCAA in 2013-14.

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.

Although the lockout might cause some disappointment for Brandon Gormley and David Rundblad, two players on the cusp of full-time NHL duty, there is still the good news of them being able to further develop their high-level skills in the AHL. Gormley and Rundblad along with fellow Phoenix Coyotes prospects playing in the Europe, junior and the NCAA still have a full season ahead to prove their worth as prospects, regardless of the situation with the NHL.
