INDY RE-SIGNS DEFENSEMAN KIRILL CHAIKA

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indy Fuel announced Thursday that they have re-signed defenseman Kirill Chaika to a standard player contract for the 2022-23 season. 

Chaika, 25, is returning for his second season both in the ECHL and with the Fuel. The 6’5”, 223-pound defenseman from Minsk, Belarus skated in 56 games with Indy, tallying two goals, 11 assists and 33 penalty minutes. He was tied with defenseman Keoni Texeira for the highest plus-minus of the season at +18. 

Prior to joining the Fuel, Chaika’s playing history includes playing for the U-20 Belarus National Team in 2016-17 (23 games with one goal and five assists) and the SPHL’s Fayetteville Marksmen in 2017-18 (31 games, one goal and two assists).

Chaiks is a great guy to have in the locker room. A teammate of his during the 2021-22 season once said, “Kirill just makes me laugh all the time.”

In addition to his work on the ice, Chaika has been heavily involved in the Indianapolis community, most recently hanging out and playing hockey with kids at Little Red Door Cancer Agency.
