Rick Fera (born August 13, 1964) in Keswick, Ontario Canada) is an English/Canadian ice hockey Forward. Rick Fera kept a remarkable scoring record throughout his playing career and is regarded as a hero at Murrayfield Racers as well as other British teams such as Solihull Barons, Basingstoke Bison and Fife Flyers.

Playing career[edit]

Fera spent the majority of his playing career playing in Great Britain, although he played junior ice hockey in his native Ontario. Fera also is a British citizen, which he achieved during his career. Although not well built, Fera was a speedy skater, who was extremely quick across the ice. Fera also played with high skill, was a deadly accurate shooter, and an extremely unselfish player, his points scoring record shows both these skills. His short partnership (#7 Jersey) with Great Britain Hall Of Famer & All-Star Player Tony Hand (#9 Jersey) at Murrayfield bore an uncanny ability to know where each other were on ice, giving rise to highly productive numbers together. He also is highly respected[by whom?] as he is a clean player, and he was a rare visitor to the penalty bin.
