One name stood out when the Arizona Coyotes PR department tweeted out the restricted free agents that were extended a qualifying offer. For just a moment, it looked like the team would not be bringing back forward Christian Fischer.
Thankfully, that didn’t last long. The Coyotes announced the team had signed Fischer to a one-year deal shortly after the announcement.
