Miskovic joined the Fuel in the team’s second season, 2015-16, and has been the team’s captain since.

The 32-year-old native of suburban Chicago has played 114 games with the Fuel, with 11 goals and 25 assists. He has spent most of his eight-year career in the AHL, where he has played 287 games with 22 goals and 61 assists. He has played for Hershey, San Antonio, Rockford, Iowa and Charlotte in the AHL. In addition to his tenure with the Fuel, he has also played six ECHL games with Cincinnati. Miskovic brings veteran leadership and puck-moving ability to the Fuel’s blueline and dressing room.

Miskovic’s signing also gives the Fuel four veterans, joining Michael Neal, Cam Reid and Geoff Walker.

The signing was not unanticipated, as Miskovic had been doing appearances with the team this summer. He will also return to his player-assistant coach role, joining head coach Bernie John and new assistant John Bierchen.

The signings give the Fuel nine forwards and six defensemen on the training camp roster a month ahead of the start of the season.  Miskovic is the sixth player to re-sign from last year’s roster, joining Nick Bligh, Michael Neal, Matt Rupert, Travis Armstrong and Chris Williams. Along with his twin brother Ryan, Rupert has since singed an AHL deal with the Rockford IceHogs.
