Where are they now? Former Fuel players

The Indy Fuel are in their third year in the ECHL, and as a developmental team, have had players going to many places. More than 100 players have worn the Fuel uniform, and many are still playing hockey at some place in their careers. Here are the whereabouts of those who played for the Fuel in the team’s first two seasons and are still active in hockey.

This is the first in a multi-part mid-season look at former Indianapolis hockey players who remain active in the sport. 

AHL

Mac Carruth: A Fuel netminder for the team’s first two seasons, he earned an extended callup to Rockford at the end of the 2015-16 year – and earned an NHL contract with the Blackhawks during that time. He is currently one of two goaltenders in Rockford, with a 3-5-3 record and 3.12 GAA in 12 games.

Chris DeSousa: An organizational success story, he signed with the Fuel out of college in 2014-15 and made an immediate impact, with 16 points in 20 games. That led to an AHL contract with Rockford the following year, and he is in his second full AHL season, with three points in 16 games for the IceHogs.

Justin Holl: A second-round Blackhawks pick in 2010, he played 66 games for the Fuel and tallied 34 points in 2014-15. That earned him an AHL contract with the Toronto Marlies, where he currently has six points in 27 games on their blue line.
