LAST TIME OUT

In their first game since January 9, the Indy Fuel began a four-game road trip with a Wednesday night matchup against the Tulsa Oilers.

ALEX’S APPLES

Sitting in first on the team in assist, Alex Rauter currently has three assists his last three games. The third-year pro picked up an assist on Mike Lee’s goal on Wednesday night and will be looking to hold on to his assist lead on Friday.

PLOUFFE RETURNS

After missing nine games due to COVID protocol, Derian Plouffe returned to the lineup on Wednesday, picking up a goal on his first shot. Prior to being out Plouffe had points in back to back games. Finishing seventh on the team in points last season, Plouffe will be expecting to get back on track with four games this weekend.
