Playing career Edit

Fistric began his major junior career in the WHL with the Vancouver Giants in 2001–02 while spending the majority of the season in the Alberta Midget Hockey League (AMHL), winning the Brian Benning Trophy as the league's top defenceman with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club.[1]

After a 12-point campaign with the Giants in 2003–04, he was drafted in the first round, 28th overall, by the Dallas Stars in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He returned to the Giants but was kept out of the lineup for all but 15 games in the subsequent 2004–05 season. In his fourth and final WHL season, Fistric won the 2006 President's Cup with the Giants and competed in the 2006 Memorial Cup. Five years after graduating from junior, Fistric was inducted into the Giants' Ring of Honour, a series of banners commemorating the team's best alumni.

Turning pro in 2006–07, Fistric was assigned to the Iowa Stars, Dallas' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, and scored 24 points in his professional rookie season. He made his debut with Dallas the following season in 2007–08, splitting the campaign between Iowa and the NHL. He managed 2 assists in his 35-game NHL rookie season with the Stars. Fistric continued to split time between the Stars and the AHL in 2008–09, recording 4 assists in 36 games in his second NHL season. In the off-season, the Stars re-signed Fistric to a three-year, $3 million contract on July 8, 2009.

In a game against Calgary Flames on January 27, 2010, Fistric received a match penalty for intent to injure after hitting opposing forward Eric Nystrom over the head with his own helmet during a fight. The following day, he was fined $2,500 by the league for the incident.[2]

Fistric currently plays division 8 ball hockey in the Ball Hockey Edmonton League.[3]
