In the first of two games on the weekend, the Fuel visited the Cincinnati Cyclones on Friday, December 10. Scoring three straight goals in the first period, the Cyclones would go on to defeat the Fuel 6-2 at Heritage Bank Arena.

HOME COOKING

The Fuel return to Indiana Farmers Coliseum on Friday for back-to-back home games before heading to Kalamazoo on Sunday. Indy will play four out of their next six games at home where they have earned a 4-4-0-0 record. Following the holiday break, the Fuel will face their first opponent outside of the Central Division when they host the Norfolk Admirals for back-to-back games on December 28 and 29. 

SCORING SPENCER

Coming into Friday night, Spencer Watson has tallied three goals in his last two games. The fifth-year winger has played 18 games for the Fuel this season tallying nine goals and three assists. Through 18 games this season, Watson is averaging 0.94 scoring chances per game. 

NEW FACES IN NEW PLACES

Looking to improve his lineup, Head Coach Doug Christiansen made multiple moves on Monday afternoon. Acquiring defenseman Pavel Vorobei from Orlando, Christiansen added a right-handed defenseman that brings a wealth of experience from the Kontinental Hockey League. Moving Cedric Lacroix and Colton Heffley to Norfolk, Christiansen also added forwards Karl El-Mir and Darien Craighead who will bring valuable depth to his forward lineup.
