Fuel add toughness with Leroux

The Indy Fuel added another measure of size and toughness this week with the signing of forward Paxton Leroux.

Leroux adds more size to the Fuel’s forward corps, at 6-3, 200, but the left-shot forward brings a lot of snarl, as well. He has played 74 ECHL games over the past two seasons with Quad City and Wichita, tallying one goal, four assists and 247 penalty minutes. He also had 100 PIMs in 36 junior games with London and Kitchener in the Ontario Hockey League from 2012-14.

To make room for Leroux on the roster, the Fuel waived forward Justin Hussar, who had played three games for the team after signing out of Merrimack College in the spring.

Indy heads to the road this week, meeting Tulsa and Missouri, before hosting Tulsa and Allen Oct. 28-29.
