Fiala has happy homecoming with Blades

Darren Steinke Saskatoon Express f you are going to shut down a top goal scorer on the ice, do it with a smile. Saskatoon Blades defenceman Evan Fiala is never going to be confused with Paul Coffey on the ice. It might be possible to confuse Fiala with Dave Manson due to playing a tough-as-nails defensive defenceman role, but there is one big exception. When Fiala is battling with someone in front of his net, in the corner or anywhere on the ice, he does it with a huge smile that is a mile wide. No matter where the Clavet product goes or what he is doing on the ice, that visible grin is always there. “I am just having fun,” said Fiala, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 204 pounds. “I love it all. “Even when they (the opponents) are mad at me, you know you are doing something right, so you might as well enjoy it.” Fiala’s smile was large when he received what turned out to be an early gift just days before the WHL’s Christmas break this season, when he found out he had been traded from the Spokane Chiefs to the Blades.

All his family members have played the game including his parents and three sisters. Father Eddie, mother Julie and older sister Jordan all play recreation hockey. His younger sister, Joelle, is a 15-year-old star forward with the Saskatoon Stars female midget AAA team, and the youngest sister, Jocelyn, is an 11-year-old playing for Clavet’s peewee tier two team. Fiala jokes that you have to watch out for the Fialas on the outdoor rink, and

On the more serious side, Fiala tries to “If you didn’t like the Habs, I think you attend as many of Joelle’s and Jocelyn’s were getting kicked out of the house,” said games as he can.
