Fuel ink blueliner Williams

The Indy Fuel signed defenseman Chris Williams and added him to the active roster Wednesday.

The blueliner played 12 games for Norfolk at the end of last season, where he had two assists and was +2. Williams, a native of Pottstown, Pa., played four years at Alaska-Anchorage, with a goal and 11 assists in 128 games. He had four points in 31 games in 2015-16 for the Seawolves before signing a pro contract.

 

Williams joins forward Anthony Beauregard and goaltender Jake Hildebrand as the Fuel’s rookies.

Earlier in the week, the Fuel placed defenseman Kyle Shapiro on reserve, placed Zach Miskovic on 21-day IR and activated Dillon Fournier from reserve. The Fuel have 12 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders on the active roster, with Shapiro and forward Cody Sharib currently on reserve.
