Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Steven Fletcher
Steven Fletcher was a hard-nosed competitor who could play left-wing and defence. He played briefly with the Montreal Canadiens and Winnipeg Jets but was predominantly an enforcer in the AHL and IHL.

Born in Montreal, Fletcher played four years with the Hull Olympiques of the QMJHL. In 1980 he was the Calgary Flames' 11th choice, 202nd overall at the NHL Entry Draft. He was strictly a farmhand for Calgary before signing as a free agent with the Montreal Canadiens prior to the 1984-85 season. Fletcher's only action with the Habs came during the 1987-88 Adams Division final versus the Boston Bruins. Montreal was being out-hit and out-worked by their opponent so coach Pat Burns called up their top minor league tough guy in an act of desperation. Fletcher saw limited action and the Canadiens were eliminated in five games.

In July 1988, Fletcher was inked to a deal by Winnipeg and played three NHL games during the next regular season. He was traded to Philadelphia a few months later but was never called up from the AHL. In 1990-91 Fletcher found a home with the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL. He played a regular shift there for over five seasons then played 23 games for the Atlanta Knights before retiring in 1996.
