Scott Fleming(24) Greenville Road Warriors

At 26-years old Fort Wayne Komets‘ center Scott Fleming(24) has to be enjoying his “rookie” season.

He first signed an agreement to join the team’s preseason roster but once they saw him play he was a part of the team.

He last played on ultimate reassignment to Gwinnett Gladiators in 2011/2012 after invites to affiliates Phoenix Coyotes and Portland Pirates‘ training camps.

His first year pro was cut short after only 6 games with 3 goals and 1 assists after suffering a season-ending concussion.

The 5’11” 180 lbs. undrafted forward is another player that took a somewhat longer route before ever signing a contract.

He started at 16 with three years marking up the score sheet in the OPJHL before moving on to 4 campaigns of hockey at Dartmouth College, where he served as team captain in 2010-2011.

After almost two full seasons of sitting on the sidelines, his return picks up where he left off.

In 40 ECHL games he has 11 goals and 23 assists with a +13 rating.

His point production got him noticed as Worcester Sharks signed him to a pto to fill some injured holes in the lineup.

He skated in 4 AHL games and dished a pair of helpers with a +1 plus/minus, which could easily grab the attention on another higher league club.

For now though, he’ll go back to double A hockey, continue to work on his game and help his team win.

Original story 2/15-14

He finished 2013/2014 scoring 16 goals and 33 assist in 62 games and added another pair of helpers in 11 postseason contests.

For his follow-up season he signed to skate with Fife Flyers of EIHL. He added to his totals slightly with 26 goals and tied his 33 assists mark for 59 points in 60 contests.

The now 27-year old has made the decision to return to North American hockey for 2015/2016 and will suit up for Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL.

We expect him to continue his point production and possibly even earn another call-up to the higher leauge.
