Fuel training camp begins today

The Indy Fuel began training camp today with a morning practice at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

The Fuel will participate in camp for a week before the first preseason game, Friday Oct. 6 at the Coliseum against Fort Wayne. The two teams will then travel to Fort Wayne the next night for the second and final preseason game.

The team has 15 forwards, 10 defensemen and two goaltenders on the training camp roster, but also is expecting more players to return from Rockford. Of those, eight are on tryout agreements.
