DeSousa called up to Rockford

Forward Chris DeSousa was called up from the Indy Fuel to the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs Thursday.

DeSousa played in both Fuel games last weekend, tallying an assist. He has 17 points in 22 ECHL games with the Fuel since turning pro in February. DeSousa signed a contract with the IceHogs in the summer, and will be making his AHL debut this weekend.

One of Reed Seckel or Cody Sharib will likely move into DeSousa’s spot in the forward unit this weekend, as the Fuel play tw0 games in Fort Wayne, with an 8 p.m. faceoff tonight and a 7:30 p.m. puck drop Saturday. .

DeSousa becomes the second Fuel player to be called up to Rockford this week. Defenseman Sam Jardine was also called up earlier this week and defenseman Dillon Fournier assigned to Indy.
