EHC MUNICH PARTS WAYS WITH ZACH FUCALE

It was announced on Wednesday morning that EHC Munich of the DEL has decided to part ways with a handful of players, including former second-round pick Zach Fucale.

The team released an official statement on Twitter.

"In addition to Jason Jaffray and Mads Christensen, Philipp Mass and Zach Fucale will no longer wear the jersey of the main round winner in the future. With the defenders Blake Parlett and Andrew Bodnarchuk davern the talks, the contract negotiations will be continued at the appropriate time.


Fucale joined EHC on Feb. 18 after he was released from his contract with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch, but didn't play a single game for the club.



Fucale, now 24, was originally selected 36th overall by the Montreal Canadiens at the 2013 NHL Draft. He never found his footing at the NHL level, but found quite a bit of success in international play, helping Team Canada win the gold medal at the 2015 World Junior Championships, as well as at the Spengler Cup in 2016 and 2019.













After a fantastic junior career with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), Fucale was selected 36th overall overall by the Montreal Canadiens at the 2013 NHL Draft. Bu

Despite being such a promising young star, Fucale was never able to carve himself out a spot on the Canadiens roster and spent his post-draft years bouncing between the QMJHL, AHL and ECHL.

On July 1, 2018 he and the Canadiens parted ways after the team decided to not issue him a qualifying offer. Later that day he signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Vegas Golden Knights for the 2018-19 season.
