Fuel to lay down the Law

The Indy Fuel added more size and bulk on their forward line Wednesday, announcing that forward Taylor Law had agreed to terms with the ECHL club.

Law is the team’s eighth player — and sixth forward. He describes himself as a power forward — similar to the description provided by Monday’s signee Cory Thorson. Law stands 6-2, 200, taking a lot of space up front.

He will be an ECHL rookie this year, making him the fifth rookie out of the eight players who have agreed to terms with the Fuel. He comes to the Fuel after a four-year career at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. He had 26 goals and 23 assists in 115 games. His best year came as a sophomore, when he had 11 goals and 15 assists in 35 games in 2011-12, being named the team’s MVP. He was also named the team’s top freshman the previous year. He suffered an injury his junior year, but came back in a different role this season and had six goals and four assists in 30 games.

Law also played for the Elmira Jackals after his college career ended this spring, scoring twice in four games.

“Taylor is a big, skilled forward with the ability to score big goals in big situations,” Fuel head coach Scott Hillman said in a team release. “He’ll learn to use his size effectively to compete at the pro level as he makes his transition from college hockey…He’s a welcome addition to our young group.”

Law is the sixth forward to be added to the club’s roster, out of the eight players announced so far. He is also the sixth player to have played four years in the NCAA.

Law is a native of Markham, Ontario. He was a prolific scorer with the Junior A Whitby Fury from 2008-10, scoring 49 goals in 91 games over those two seasons. He majored in management at Canisius.
