Fischer made the transition from the Czech Republic to Quebec when he started his major junior hockey career in 1997. As a result, he understands what Nestrasil is going through and has already been a big help to his fellow countryman.
"He’s from Czech Republic like me so in that case it will be way easier for me," Nestrasil said. "We spoke right after the draft and at the dinner for team stuff. Here, when he saw me on the ice and do something wrong, he come up and tell me how to do it right."
Both Fischer and Nestrasil look forward to working together over the next few years as Nestrasil works to develop into an NHL player.
"I’m really excited to work with him next year and work on his skating," Fischer said. "He needs to work on taking pucks to the net and just on every young guy, living hockey and being professional, being ready, and having good habits all the time."
