Miskovic loaned to AHL; Fuel sign Gould

The Indy Fuel signed rookie forward Malcolm Gould Friday and also loaned captain Zach Miskovic to the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers.

Interim head coach Bernie John said Thursday Gould – a scorer – could potentially make his debut tonight when the Fuel meet the Cincinnati Cyclones at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

Gould recently finished his senior season at Michigan Tech University, where he had nine goals and 17 assists in 37 games for MTU and was the team’s third-leading scorer. He was also the team’s third-leading scorer as a junior, when he had 14 goals and 17 assists in 38 games. He was chosen second-team All-WCHA as a junior and third-team All-WCHA this season.

Gould is a 5-11, 175-pound right-shot forward from North Vancouver, B.C. In his college career, he played 123 games, tallying 32 goals and 43 assists. In his last two seasons, he had 57 points in 75 games and was +37.

Gould becomes the third Fuel player to join the team this season after finishing his college career, joining Michael Colantone and Terry Shafer.

Miskovic becomes the ninth player to suit up for both the Fuel and an AHL team this season. He joins Nick Mattson – who is currently in Rockford – in the AHL. Miskovic is an AHL veteran – 280 of his 349 career pro games have come in that league over his seven-year career. Charlotte will be the sixth AHL team he has played for – joining Hershey, Chicago, San Antonio, Iowa and Rockford.
