Former Dundee Stars netminder, Travis Fullerton spent just one season with club but he has played for a few Elite League clubs and now he has looked back on his time in Tayside.

By Kris Smith

Fullerton joined the Stars in the summer of 2017 after spending the past season and a half between two other Scottish teams, Braehead Clan and Edinburgh Capitals.

The now EIHL veteran, enjoyed his time in Dundee and Travis started off by briefly explaining what he has been doing since he departed two seasons ago.

He began: “I have played the last two years with the Guildford Flames and have been spending my summers back home in Canada.”

 

 

The shot-stopper from Riverview, New Brunswick also made many memories during his season with the Stars and his time in Scotland.

Travis added: “I have some fond memories of playing with the Stars and playing in Scotland in general.

“I got to explore such a gorgeous area with so much history and play some world class golf courses, that I could only dream about before coming over.

“We had a fun group that year and we all made the most of our time in Dundee.”

 

 

However, he then shared his favourite moment in a Stars jersey and he said: “I think when we went on a run after Christmas, winning nine out of 10 games or something like that.

“It got us in the playoff picture down the stretch and the arena became more packed as a result of it.

“Unfortunately we missed the playoffs, but we made quite a push at the end.”

Fullerton then discussed more about what brought him to the Elite League in the first place and then to Dundee 18 months later.

“A friend of mine was playing in Glasgow in 2015 and mentioned that their goalie got hurt and they needed a guy around Christmas time”, he said.

 

 

Travis continued: “I had not travelled outside North America before, so I jumped at the chance.

“I never thought it would turn into a five year thing but I am grateful it did!

“I came to Dundee because I had spoken to the coach (Omar Pacha) at the time a few years prior and we stayed in touch.

“I signed pretty quickly after the 2017 season finished for me in Edinburgh.”

The Canadian has now played for four different Elite League clubs and when asked what he misses most from his year with the Stars, he replied: “The proximity to St Andrews, I was there almost once a week playing golf, hitting balls or just hanging out in the town, it is a golfers dream.

“Dundee is a great place to live as well, it has great pubs, great restaurants and I have nothing but good things to say about the town, and the people there.”

 

 

Finally, Travis shared a message for all the Stars fans back in Dundee and he said: “Please keep supporting the club and coming out to the games.

“I remember being treated so well there by the fans and hopefully you guys get rewarded with a great team soon!”
