With aspirations for a NHL career, Fleischmann immediately made the transition to North America by joining the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League for the 2002–03 season. In his first season, Fleischmann emerged as a leader on the offense for the Warriors finishing with 71 points in 65 games. Helping Moose Jaw reach the second round of the post season, he led the team with 11 assists and 15 points in 12 games.
