Fuel announce training camp roster

The Indy Fuel announced their training camp roster Thursday, which includes 18 players under ECHL contract and 16 players attending camp on tryout offers.

Camp begins Friday, with an intrasquad scrimmage set for noon Sunday at The Fuel Tank. The two preseason games are set for Oct. 7-8, with the first game in Fort Wayne and the home preseason game at 6 p.m. Oct. 8 at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

The team will have 20 forwards, 11 defensemen and three goaltenders on the first camp roster for head coach Bernie John. Six players will began camp in the AHL with the Rockford IceHogs – Marek Tvrdon, Cody Sharib, Tyler Currier, Matt Rupert, Anthony Beauregard and Matt Stanisz, so the Fuel will begin camp with 28 players.

The roster includes one veteran – captain Zach Miskovic – and five rookies under ECHL contract. Of the players in camp, five played for the team in 2015-16. Miskovic, Justin Hussar, Cody Sharib, Michael Colantone and Keegan Asmundson are returning Fuel players. Two former Indiana Ice players – Alex Wideman and Max Cook – are also on the training camp roster.

The Fuel will also anticipate receiving players from the AHL affiliate in Rockford, but due to the World Cup of Hockey, NHL and AHL camps are opening later than usual this season.
