DeSousa, Barnes returning to Indy

Forwards Chris DeSousa and Tyler Barnes have been assigned to the Indy Fuel by the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs.

Barnes will be playing his fourth stint with the Fuel this season. The forward has three goals and six assists in six games. The third-year pro also has seven points in 22 AHL games with Rockford. Last weekend, Barnes had points in both of the Fuel’s contests, at Cincinnati and home against Fort Wayne.

DeSousa made his pro debut with the Fuel in 2014-15 after finishing his college career at the University of Prince Edward Island and had 16 points in 20 games. His play earned him an AHL contract with Rockford that summer. He started the following season with the Fuel, had an assist in two games, and earned a callup to the AHL. He has played 91 games in Rockford, with 10 goals and seven assists. This season, he has three goals and an assist in 24 AHL games.
