ABOUT THE HOCKEY:

INDIANAPOLIS- The Fuel host the Wheeling Nailers for the seventh time this season and are looking for their fifth win against the divisional opponent. All games between these two teams have ended in regulation this season with the Fuel leading the season series 4-2 so far. 

LAST TIME OUT

The last time these two teams met was March 3 when the Fuel defeated the Nailers 3-2 with a second period game-winning goal from Chase Lang and a scoreless third period. There were three power play goals in total in this game, two coming from Indy’s Lang and Max Golod. 

ADRIAN CONNECTION

The Fuel have added forward Matus Spodniak, who has played the last two seasons at Adrian College, scoring 94 points in 60 games. The 5’11, Slovakia native led the team in scoring this season. He joins fellow Adrian alumni Andrew Bellant and Cam Gray in Indy though he only overlapped with Gray for one season.

IMPENDING PLAYOFFS

The Central division is currently the only division in the ECHL will three teams guaranteed to make the playoffs already. The division will likely be even more solidified after this weekend as a regulation win for the Fuel over Wheeling will eliminate them from playoff contention. Additionally, a regulation win for Fort Wayne over Kalamazoo on Friday would eliminate them from playoff contention as well.

NONPROFIT OF THE GAME: 

Folds of Honor
