Fuel add D Andy Simpson

The Indy Fuel signed former Dartmouth College defenseman Andy Simpson Monday afternoon.

Simpson recently completed his four-year career at Dartmouth, tallying eight goals and 41 points in 109 games. He had a goal and six assists this season.

A native of St. Louis, he stands 5-10, 190. He also played two seasons in the USHL with Cedar Rapids from 2009-11 before playing at Dartmouth from 2011-15.

Simpson becomes the fourth player to join the Fuel after finishing his college season, joining Chris DeSousa (University of PEI), Peter Schneider (Notre Dame) and Doug Jessey (Canisius).

To make room for Simpson on the roster, the Fuel released defenseman Dan Ford on Monday.
