Colin Fraser on returning ‘home’ to Chicago

Center Colin Fraser took a bit of a curious path to his current role with the Kings.  Originally drafted by Philadelphia in 2003, while he was playing junior hockey for the Red Deer Rebels, he never got a chance to play in the City of Brotherly Love.  Instead, a year later, the Flyers traded him to Chicago [...]
