Fuel Visit Cincinnati for First Road Trip of the Season

After dropping game one last Saturday, the Fuel will play their first game on the road on Saturday night, facing Cincinnati for the second game in a row. Indy is looking to earn their first win of the season while the Cyclones will be playing their first game at home since March 7th of 2020.

LAST TIME OUT

Opening the 2021-22 campaign at home, the Indy Fuel hosted the Cincinnati Cyclones on Saturday, October 23. Seeing goals from Cedric Lacroix and Brent Gates, the Fuel would be foiled by a late third-period goal by Mason Mitchell that handed the Cyclones the win in game one of the 2021-22 season. 

FOCUSING ON THE RUSH

With the speed of this year’s team, Head Coach Doug Christiansen wants the team focusing heavily on their play on the rush. “I think our rush play needs to be improved offensively and defensively,” said Christiansen. “We need to get better in all aspects of the game.” Playing on the rush and playing with speed requires the team to be in shape and be able to sustain that for 60 minutes. “For us as a team we need to get into a little bit better shape, which we’ve really worked on this week,” Christiansen said. 

GATES STAYING HOT

Scoring in Saturday night’s game against Cincinnati and a hat trick in the second preseason game, Brent Gates has four goals in his last two games against the Cyclones. Skating in four games for the Fuel last season, Gates tallied two goals and one assist. 

MORRIS GETTING STARTS

After spending the entire 2020-21 season in Rockford, Cale Morris started his first ECHL game last weekend. The rookie goaltender stopped 26 of 29 shots faced in his first game in a Fuel uniform. 

ROOKIES GETTING THE NOD

Saturday’s lineup featured seven ECHL rookies. Defensemen Kirill Chaika, Christopher Cameron and goaltender Cale Morris each played their first ECHL games while CJ Eick played his first game in a Fuel uniform.
