Drew Richard Fata (born July 28, 1983 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) is a professional hockey defenceman for AS Asiago Hockey of the Serie A. He is the younger brother of Rico Fata, who has played for several NHL teams over the course of his career.

Playing careerEdit

Fata was drafted 86th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Without playing a game for the Penguins, Fata signed as a free agent with the New York Islanders on February 4, 2007. When Islanders defenceman Sean Hill received a 20-game suspension on April 20, 2007 after testing positive performance-enhancing drugs, Drew Fata was called upon to take his place in the lineup. He then made his playoff debut against the Buffalo Sabres on April 20, though the Islanders lost the game and were eliminated from the postseason.

On July 2, 2008, Fata signed with the Phoenix Coyotes. Fata started the 2008–09 season with the Coyotes affiliate, San Antonio Rampage, before he was traded by the Coyotes to the Ottawa Senators for Alexander Nikulin on November 3, 2008.[1]

On July 7, 2009, Fata signed a one year, two way deal with the Boston Bruins.[2]

After coming off a season that involved ankle surgery, Fata did not receive any offers for four months. Eventually Fata was invited to return to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the team where he started his professional career.[3] After one game with the Penguins, Fata was released from his professional tryout contract on November 1, 2010.[4]

On November 1, 2010 Fata signed with Sparta Sarpsborg of the Norwegian GET-ligaen[5]
