Rockford calls up 4 Fuel players; D’Amico activated

The Indy Fuel saw a significant overhaul of their roster Monday as the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs called up all four skaters the team had assigned to the Fuel – defensemen Jonathan Carlsson and Nick Mattson, as well as forwards Evan Mosey and Bryn Chyzyk.

In addition, the Fuel activated forward Patrick D’Amico from the reserve list. He had missed the last four contests with an undisclosed injury.

Mattson and Carlsson had made up the Fuel’s top defense pairing, both skating in all 18 of the team’s games. Carlsson was the team’s top-scoring defenseman, with a goal and seven assists, while Mattson also had seven assists. Mosey played six games before suffering an injury that kept him out of the last few contests, with three goals. Chyzyk had two assists in nine games with the Fuel.

The callups leave goaltenders Jake Hildebrand and Eric Levine as the only current Fuel players on loan from the IceHogs/Blackhawks organization. The Fuel currently have 11 forwards, five defensemen and two goaltenders on the active roster, with three more players currently on injured reserve.

The Fuel are back in action Friday when they host the Cincinnati Cyclones for a 7:35 p.m. face-off.
