Fuel Announce Multiple Roster Moves

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indy Fuel, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs announced Tuesday that they have signed forward Brent Gates to a standard player contract for the 2021-22 season and added defenseman Aaron Atwell on a pro-tryout agreement. Additionally, the Rockford IceHogs have assigned Riley McKay, Liam Folkes, Chad Yetman and Tom Aubrun to the Fuel. 

Gates, 24, returns to the Fuel after he skated in four games last season before signing a pro-tryout agreement with the Rochester Americans. Appearing in 12 games for the Americans, Gates tallied two goals and six assists. 

Atwell, 31, joins Indy after spending the past three years in the Federal Prospects Hockey League. Entering his eighth pro season, Atwell has played 199 games in the FPHL tallying 18 goals, 81 assists and 208 penalty minutes.
