Indy Fuel players in review: The forwards

Today begins a two-part series looking back at the Indy Fuel’s 2016-17 season. We look back at the forwards who finished the year with the team, their status and where they might fit in the future, either in Indy or elsewhere. Part 2: the defense and goaltenders.

Left wings

Daniel Ciampini

  • Contract: AHL (Rockford)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (58 pro games)
  • Notes; 14-24-38 as a rookie from Union College. He’s under contract to the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs, and with his play this season, it’s hard to imagine him not getting a look in the AHL next year. Ciampini is a very creative playmaker and an outstanding finisher.

Dylan Clarke

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Veteran (298 pro games)
  • Notes: Clarke indicated before the season finale he plans to retire this off-season. He’s had a solid five-year pro career in Tulsa, South Carolina, Evansville, Rapid City and now Indy. He had nine goals, 22 assists and a team-high (and, for Clarke, a career-high) 143 PIM this season. If this is it for Clarke, he”ll finish with 86 goals and 123 assists in 298 pro games while bringing a lot of heft and physicality to the game. He began his career a scorer, and finished in a physical, enforcing role.

Cody Sharib

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (69 pro games)
  • Notes: Sharib simply put the puck in the net – he had a team-high 17 goals and also 16 assists, often playing on an energy line with Matt White and Rhett Bly at the end of the season. Sharib scored at a similar pace to his college career at UConn, and brings both size at 6-2, 220, and a hard shot. He was also +5, the Fuel’s top forward in +/-.


Michael Colantone

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (40 pro games)
  • Notes: Colantone turned pro halfway through his final college season and joined the Fuel. He has shown an ability to score – he had a 33-goal season in his last year of junior – and often filled a depth center position for the Fuel. He had 9-8-17 in 40 games and was +2, often playing both special teams.

Alex Lavoie

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (205 pro games)
  • Notes: 16-38-54 this season. He is still 55 games shy of “vet” status and he’s also young at age 23. Lavoie has now played 205 pro games in the CHL, AHL and ECHL, now for three different teams at the “AA” level. Lavoie was a part of Allen’s CHL title in 2014, and was a 21-goal scorer for a very good Florida Everglades team in 2014-15. He’s a strong playmaker who led the Fuel in assists this season.

Matt White

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (137 pro games)
  • Notes: Whenever the Fuel needed a big faceoff win, White was usually the man taking the draw. Late in the year, he centered the team’s energy line with Cody Sharib and Rhett Bly, and finished the year with 16 points in 65 games. He has 17 goals and 21 assists in 137 games with the Fuel.

Brandon Wong

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Veteran (320 North American pro games)
  • Notes: Wong has been a big scorer in his career – posting four straight 20-goal seasons from 2010-13 and again in 2014-15 – after spending the interluding season in Europe. This season, he had 57 games, nine goals and 12 assists with Indy and Tulsa. He showed strong playmaking ability in a depth role with the Fuel, and became an alternate captain late in the season.

Right wings

Rhett Bly

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (142 pro games)
  • Notes: Bly can do a little bit of everything – score, play the front of the net on the power play, kill penalties, forecheck, provide energy. It’s rare when a second-year pro becomes an alternate captain – those are almost always reserved for the team’s veterans. But it shows – Bly was named the team’s MVP after a 15-15-30 season. He has played in 142 of the team’s 144 games and, along with Matt White and Anders Franzon, is one of the three original Fuel players who suited up in the 2016 season finale. Bly has 27 goals and 36 assists in 142 career games.

Colin Murray

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (103 pro games)
  • Notes: Murray came to the Fuel late in the season and played three games, scoring one goal. He played 45 total ECHL games this season, with nine goals and seven assists with Kalamazoo and Brampton. He brings size at 6-4, 208, and the ability to play a two-way game. He has a 19-15-34 line in 103 games over two seasons, all in the ECHL.

Peter Schneider

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (74 pro games)
  • The strong right wing put up a 16-21-37 line this year and was the team’s second-leading goal scorer. He has 20 goals and 25 assists in 74 games and plays a strong two-way game.

Mike Seidel

  • Contract: ECHL (Fuel)
  • 2016-17 status: Tweener (181 pro games)
  • Notes: Seidel didn’t get much of an opportunity to show his ability with the Fuel, as he was injured after playing just two games with the team. But the speedy winger has plenty of skill, which he has shown over his three pro seasons. He had 13 goals and 30 points with Elmira in 54 games this season, and was acquired in a late-season trade. He also had a 23-goal season with Elmira in 2014-15, and has 48 goals and 57 assists in 181 games since 2013. Seidel won an NCAA title with Minnesota-Duluth in 2012. If he returns, he’ll be part of the offensive core.

  7. 當蛋白線埋入皮膚後,皮下組織會將蛋白線視為異物,啟動異物反應,因此刺激膠原蛋白生長,且可促進新陳代謝,更新老化肌膚,所以客戶在術後也會發覺膚質變得較透亮白皙。膠原蛋白提拉線像一個“磁力線”一樣,將埋入處附近的肌肉和脂肪固定在原處,不會往下墜,其後會吸引皮下組織往蛋白線集中部位移動,就會逐漸產生提拉的緊實效果。也被用於填充美容的微整形,蛋白線材就好比蓋房子的鋼骨支架,先埋入皮膚當作基底結構,然後再注入好比水泥的玻尿酸或自體脂肪,因為有吸附力不易擴散,就可穩定固定住填充物,讓立體支撐力效果更好。

  8. 關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time
    choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank
