The Indy Fuel announced Tuesday the team has signed goaltender Keegan Asmundson.
Asmundson had a strong college career at Canisius, where he posted a career .930 save percentage, went 18-15-6 and had a 2.08 GAA in 49 games between 2012-15. In his final college season of 2014-15, he was 13-8-4 with a 1.96 GAA and .930 save percentage in 26 games, establishing himself as one of the top goaltenders in the Atlantic Hockey Association.
He turned pro in spring 2015 and made his debut in the Indiana Farmers Coliseum against the Fuel, playing for the South Carolina Stingrays. That was his lone loss – he was 2-1-0 with a 1.67 GAA in three appearances for the Stingrays. This season, he has played seven ECHL games for the Evansville IceMen, posting a 4.58 GAA and .864 save percentage, and has played three games for the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League, winning all three and posting a 1.62 GAA and .948 save percentage.
Asmundson is the third player acquired by the Fuel in two days, joining forward Brandon Wong and defensemen Trevor Campbell, who came to the team via trade from Tulsa on Monday. He’ll join Shane Owen in the Fuel net for this weekend’s three-game road swing in Missouri. In recent weeks, goaltender Mac Carruth has been called up to AHL Rockford, and goaltender Cedrick Desjardins was initially assigned to the Fuel by the New York Rangers, but was called up to AHL Hartford prior to Saturday night’s Fuel game. He becomes the fifth goaltender to join the Fuel on either an ECHL contract or NHL/AHL assignment, joining Owen, Carruth, Desjardins and Jordan Ruby.
Also Tuesday, the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs reassigned defenseman Nick Mattson to the Fuel after he played the weekend in Rockford. The Fuel now have 11 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders on the active roster.
