He played his junior career for the Ontario Hockey League team the Sudbury Wolves.
As a youth, Fitzpatrick played in the 1989 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a minor ice hockey team from Rochester, New York.
In July 2004, Fitzpatrick filed for salary arbitration, but was able to reach a deal with the Sabres before the hearing. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he spent his time doing odd jobs before signing with Rochester for the final 20 games. He also played with the Original Stars Hockey League before its collapse, and worked at a hockey clinic.
After returning with the Sabres for 2005–06, Fitzpatrick then moved on to the Vancouver Canucks the following season and secured a role as a depth defenseman playing in 58 games and appearing in the playoffs. A free agent, Fitzpatrick then signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on October 9, 2007, and split the 2007–08 season between the Flyers and AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms.
The final voting results on January 13, 2007, saw Fitzpatrick finish in third place behind Scott Niedermayer and Nicklas Lidström, meaning he did not start in the All-Star game. Slate found the final results suspicious due to unlikely numerical coincidences in the final week of voting, and believed the NHL altered the vote counts.
In 2008, Fitzpatrick former AHL club, the Rochester Americans (also his hometown) requested that now sole parent club, the Florida Panthers, provide the Amerks with more veteran players to aide prospects, and put together a winning team. The Panthers responded by recruiting fan-favorite Fitzpatrick to a two-year contract to have him lead the way for Rochester's defense.
