Guillaume Naud Added to Fuel Blue Line
INDIANAPOLIS - The Indy Fuel, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks and the AHL's Rockford IceHogs, announced Friday that they have signed rookie defenseman Guillaume Naud. Naud will be available in time for the Fuel's Central Division contest with the Cincinnati Cyclones Friday night at Indiana Farmers Coliseum.
Naud, 26, appeared in one ECHL game this season, recording two penalty minutes for the Kalamazoo Wings on Dec. 12 while on loan from the Southern Professional Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen. In 18 games with Peoria this season, the 6-foot-2, 207-pound rearguard tallied two goals, five assists and 18 penalty minutes. Before earning an invite to the Fuel's training camp this fall, Naud made his professional debut in the ECHL at the end of the 2017-18 season. The native of Augsburg, Germany saw action in 10 contests with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Manchester Monarchs, registering his first ECHL point while with the Monarchs on March 2, 2018.
Prior to turning pro, Naud played five seasons of collegiate hockey in Canada split between the University of Lethbridge and Nipissing University. In three seasons with Nipissing, the defenseman tallied nine goals and 22 assists over 59 games.
The Fuel continue a weekend homestand Friday as they take on the ECHL-leading Cyclones, before wrapping up their 3-in-3 set Saturday against the Brampton Beast.
