ECHL: Indy Fuel Extend Head Coach Duncan Dalmao

The Indy Fuel announced on Wednesday that they have extended head coach Duncan Dalmao through the 2024-25 season. The 44-year-old took over the reins of the Indy Fuel after Doug Christensen and the Fuel decided to mutually part ways back in March 2022, after he spent three seasons as the Fuel’s head coach. In his first full season as the bench boss of the Fuel, he led them to a 43-24-5, including a 23-12-1 record away from home; the 43 wins were a franchise best for the Fuel. Indy would make the Kelly Cup Playoffs for the second time in three seasons, however, they would be swept by the Toledo Walleye in the first round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs. Prior to joining the Fuel, Dalmao spent two seasons as an assistant coach with the Brampton Beast who folded after the 2019-20 season. He spent six years as a player in the ECHL playing in 391 games and putting up 49 goals and 152 assists for 201 points. “It’s an honour to re-sign with a first class organization, whose fan base is second to none in this league. As a coach you can only ask for two things – support from your ownership and front office, and a city whose fans support their team unconditionally. Indy checks both of those boxes and then some! We look forward to building on last season’s success!” said Dalmao on his extension via the press release from the Indy Fuel.
