Last night in the Arizona Coyotes’ 4-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Christian Fischer, who lead the Tucson Roadrunners in goal scoring in their inaugural season, registered his first NHL hat trick. All around, it was a big night for former Tucson Roadrunners players on the NHL roster.
With Dylan Strome scoring the Coyotes’ other goal, former Roadrunners scored all four of Arizona’s goals last night. Brendan Perlini’s assist also meant that 3 out of the 6 Coyotes players that found their way on the score sheet last night have spent considerable time in the AHL with Tucson.
