Leading the team in power play goals with 10, Craighead has registered eight goals on the man advantage since joining the Fuel in mid-December.

PLAYING SPOILER

Facing a team that is fighting for the Brabham Cup, the Fuel have an opportunity to play spoiler in the final week of the season. Hosting the Cincinnati Cyclones for two games this weekend, the Fuel can knock the Cyclones out of the final playoff spot in the Central. A win for Kalamazoo on Wednesday will tie the Wings in points with the Cyclones for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. If the Fuel are able to take both wins this weekend and Kalamazoo defeats Toledo, they will bump the Cyclones out of the playoffs.
