Former Chief Fletcher Uncertain About Future

By Dan Weaver Staff Writer

Scott Fletcher, traded by the Spokane Chiefs to the Brandon Wheat Kings last week, has returned to his Grand Prairie, Alberta, home and is undecided about his future in hockey.

Fletcher, 20, was to meet the Wheat Kings last Friday in Lethbridge, but instead decided to take time off.

So what are the odds of Fletcher reporting to his new club?

“Probably 50-50,” Fletcher said Wednesday night by telephone. “I haven’t made any final decisions yet. I just got home on Monday and haven’t had time to talk to anybody. I need some time away from hockey.”

In 95 games over two seasons in Spokane, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound Fletcher had a goal, six assists and 230 penalty minutes. The Chiefs traded him for a fourth-round pick in the ‘96 bantam draft.

Fletcher said he was disappointed but not bitter.

“When you’ve been with a team close to two years, you make friends,” he said. “It’s tough, but it’s a business and that’s all it comes down to.

“I have no problem with the way I was treated; Spokane was a great place to be.”
