I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'one going over ice' is the definition.
The answer is a person as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.

'right behind fish' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'right' could be 'r' (common abbreviation) and 'r' is found in the answer.
'fish' could be 'skate' (skate is a kind of fish) and 'skate' is present in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
