Lambton mourns the loss of Coach Rick Fraser
Submitted By Dawn Riley on Tuesday, November 17, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Coach Rick Fraser.
Rick passed away yesterday morning after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Rick was well-known in the hockey community as both a coach and referee, always had a big smile, and a kind word. He will be extremely missed by his Boys that he has made such a big impression on during his time on the bench with Lambton AAA.
Fraser played three seasons in Oshawa from 1971-74, patrolling the blue line for the Generals before being drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 10th round of the 1974 NHL Draft. The Indianapolis Racers selected Fraser in the 17th round of the WHA Draft as he’d go on to play parts of four professional seasons between the NAHL and IHL.

The younger brother of long-time NHL referee Kerry Fraser, Rick planted roots in the Ontario Hockey League as the father of former hometown favourite Sarnia Sting defender Jamie Fraser who has spent the past 10 seasons playing in the Austrian Elite League.
A Sarnia-Lambton Sports Hall of Fame inductee in 2019, Rick was a retired City of Sarnia firefighter who was often seen at the rink watching his grandchildren.
We send our sincere condolences to the entire Fraser family

Rest easy Coach Rick
