Fuel acquire Montgomery, Martell

The Indy Fuel claimed defenseman Brandon Martell off waivers from Tulsa Saturday, the ECHL announced. The team also announced Friday it has acquired forward Brock Montgomery from Orlando for future considerations.

Martell is in his fourth full ECHL season. He has 18 goals and 25 assists in 206 games in his career, having played for Kalamazoo, Rapid City, Evansville, Wichita, Alaska and Tulsa. His acquisition gives the Fuel a full complement of six defensemen – callups and injuries had them playing two games this week with five blueliners, the most recent move being when Jonathan Carlsson was called up to AHL Rockford on Friday.

Montgomery, a right wing, is also in his fourth full ECHL season, with two goals and four assists in 12 games for the Orlando Solar Bears this season. In 155 career games, he has 29 goals and 51 assists. He had a 37-point season with Orlando in 2014-15 in 58 games. He had 13 points in 40 games for Fort Wayne last season. Coach Bernie John described him as a big player with skill.

The Fuel are in action at 6:05 p.m. tonight in Cincinnati, then return home to face Brampton at 3:05 p.m. Sunday.
