The Indy Fuel made several roster moves on Monday afternoon. One of the biggest being a trade between Indy and the Allen Americans. Indy received forward Alex Guptill from the Americans in exchange for defenseman Randy Cure.
Along with Monday’s trade, Indy placed forwards Anthony Beauregard and Marek Tvrdon on the team’s suspension list. The Fuel’s AHL affiliate, Rockford IceHogs also recalled forward Tyler Barnes from Indy on Monday.
Tvrdon tallied 12 (7g, 5a) points in 21 games with Indy this season. Although Slovak was third on the team in points, he also had one of the worst plus/minus ratings at -13. Beauregard played in 21 games for the Fuel tallying 10 points (5g, 5a), the most points by a rookie on the team. According to Victor Findlay @Finder_24, Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
