Once a top prospect, Fata has now chosen to extend his playing career in Europe. He is best known for his explosive skating and also has a very good work ethic and a high level of competitiveness. Fata never turned out to be an elite NHL talent, though he was able to produce in the minors. He has good hands, OK hockey sense and decent defensive game but was unable to make the jump to the NHL level. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)
