Fishman is an above-average skater who is able to generate speed through his crossovers. He always seems to be moving his feet. Keeps up with the pace of play and has a nice cruising speed, and can win footraces to loose pucks. He has good edgework and agility, and he uses them to create time and space for himself and his teammates. Is elusive and isn’t afraid to take himself toward the opposing net or to challenge opposing defenders directly. He gets himself involved right in puck battles along the boards or the net-front, showing a willingness to dig and work in order to make things happen. When he gains possession of the puck he is able to skate into the offensive zone and make clean, if unspectacular, passes to his linemates. Has good hands in tight and is able to use them to his advantage to make plays under pressure. Communicates with his teammates quite well, including using his hands and stick to help send messages and to direct traffic. Makes it difficult at times for his opponents to cleanly get the puck and make a play with it, showing a physical edge and even knocking opponents off the puck occasionally, despite his smaller stature. In the defensive zone one thing that he needs to work on is his positioning. He tends to drift too high sometimes and takes himself out of the play as an option for the breakout. He does, however, come back defensively and help his defenders out when the puck transitions back from the offensive zone. Is willing to block shots. He’s a little difficult to project due to a lack of games, another victim of the missed OHL season, even though he played a bit in a junior Finnish league. Fishman has some work to do away from the puck, but has some good tools to work with moving forward.
