Press loaned to Fuel, Barnes to Allen

The Rockford IceHogs announced Wednesday they have loaned defenseman Robin Press to the Indy Fuel.

Press has a goal and eight assists in 23 games in his first stint with the Fuel. He also has played six games in the AHL with the IceHogs.

The IceHogs also loaned forward Tyler Barnes to the Allen Americans. Last week, the San Jose Barracuda – the Americans’ AHL affiliate – loaned forward Jake Marchment to the Fuel, so the Barnes loan effectively works as the second half of that deal. Barnes had 15 points in 15 games for the Fuel this year, and bolsters an already-deep Allen team for the playoff drive.

The loans happened after the IceHogs signed Anthony Louis and Luc Snuggerud to amateur tryout offers in the day.

Earlier in the week, the Fuel announced the release of forward Jack Ceglarski from his amateur tryout offer.

The moves give the Fuel a roster of 11 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.
