|Fleck and a Fan|
From the reports that I read and been told, Tyler Fleck was/is your typical hard nosed defencemen. A real team player. He's one of those Jason Smith/Steve Staios type of guys. You know, the "I'll take a puck to the balls or the face if that means that your not scoring" type of guy.
He was the captain of the OKC Blazers and did a great deal of service and support for OKC.
"Tyler Fleck is a tough defenseman who has been a standout player for a number of years in this league (CHL)," Tulsa Oilers coach Bruce Ramsay said. "He's the kind of player that will sacrifice every part of his body to make a great play."
In 2002/03, he had a personal CHL high, 223 penalty minutes. He wasn't a soft guy to play against by any means. It's almost like he's a Canadian.
He is Canadian. Tyler was born on January 20, 1979 in Carlyle, Saskatchewan, which would make him 31 years old right now. Like Don Cherry would say, "He's a good Canadian Kid!". *thumbs up*
After having some decent seasons over his 10 plus years in the CHL, he had an injury plagued year last season and it cost him. After the Blazers folded, Tyler went to Missouri and was traded a little later on to the Tulsa Oilers to finish out the year. During that year he only played in only 37 games.
