’04 Forward James Fisher Commits to Northeastern

It’s really pouring now. For the third time in two weeks, the Huskies have received a verbal commitment from a 2004-born forward. This time it’s James Fisher, a 6-foot-2, 170 pound right shot forward out of Wilmington, MA.

Fisher current attends the Belmont Hills School in Massachusetts, where he had 14 points (4 goals) in 29 games last season as a sophomore. He played for the Boston Junior Bruins 16U program at age 14, putting up 11 points (6 goals) in 27 games. He also attended the Team USA Selects 15 camp in 2019-20, putting up a goal and assist in four games.

Fisher was named in late 2020 by the New England Hockey Journal as one of the top uncommitted ’04s in Massachusetts, and named in March 2021 as a local prospect whose stock was on the rise. He participated in the Cape Cod Whalers showcase in October 2020, after which Hockey Night in Boston’s website states “Belmont Hill sophomore James Fisher of Wilmington was all over the ice creating scoring chances left and right for the Wizards.” In this particular game, HNIB named Fisher as the game’s first star.

Mark Divver of NEHJ tweeted after Fisher’s commitment that the “big winger has pro potential,” to which Kirk Luedeke added that the stable of Grayson Badger, Ethan Fredericks, and now James Fisher is a “tremendous trio of 04’s for the Huskies.”

Congrats to James on his commitment! We look forward to watching his development over the next few years.

As always, go Huskies!
