Fiore played minor ice hockey with the Laval Patriotes, and participated in the 2009 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with them. He later played midget hockey in the QMAAA with the Laval-Montréal Rousseau Royal before embarking on major junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Drummondville Voltigeurs, Shawinigan Cataractes and the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
Through an impressive first training camp with the Ducks, Fiore was amongst the last cuts re-assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls, to begin the 2017–18 season. On October 5, 2017, he was soon recalled to the Ducks and later made his NHL debut in a 3–2 overtime defeat to the Philadelphia Flyers on October 8, 2017. After making his solitary appearance for the Ducks, he was re-assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls, for the remainder of the season, collecting 18 goals and 30 points in 65 games.
In the following 2018–19 season, Fiore continued in the AHL with the Gulls and contributed with 11 points in 23 games before he was traded by the Ducks to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Trevor Murphy on December 28, 2018. He was immediately re-assigned to continue in the AHL with the Tucson Roadrunners.
