Bly to play in Europe

Rhett Bly, a two-year member of the Indy Fuel and the team’s career leader in games played, has announced he plans to play the 2016-17 season with Grenoble in France.

He becomes the fourth player from last year’s Fuel squad to sign in Europe, joining Matt White, Anders Franzon and Patrick Koudys. Koudys and Bly will be opponents in the French league.

Grenoble confirmed the news Sunday morning.

He had 27 goals and 36 assists in 142 games with the Fuel, while also playing key roles on both the power play and penalty kill. His high-energy play at the right wing earned him both an alternate captain designation as a second-year pro, as well as the team MVP honor this spring. Bly has played in all but two of the Fuel’s games in the team’s history.

The Fuel currently have five forwards, one defenseman and one goaltender under contract for 2016-17.

Because the Fuel have tendered Bly a qualifying offer, the team will retain his ECHL rights for the upcoming season.
