INDIANAPOLIS – The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs announced Saturday that they have reassigned defenseman Josh McArdle to the ECHL’s Indy Fuel. The defenseman will be with the Fuel as they wrap up a two-game set with the Tulsa Oilers Saturday at Indiana Farmers Coliseum. 

McArdle, 24, has appeared in 19 games with Indy this season, tallying one goal, two assists and 15 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound rookie defenseman recorded his first professional goal during a 4-3 Fuel win against Cincinnati on Nov. 10. In 29 career ECHL contests with Indy and Worcester, McArdle has collected one goal and four assists. Additionally, the native of Roscoe, Ill. has seen action in three AHL contests with the IceHogs this season, registering two shots and four penalty minutes.
