Just to be clear, Komets captain Colin Chaulk is done for this season.
He has had myriad injuries -- shoulder, foot infection, groin, nerve injury from the infection -- that has limited him to 28 of 67 games.
"He just doesn't have the strength he needs right now to really get the job done," general manager David Franke said.
Trust me when I tell you, Chaulk was well below 100 percent when he came back from the foot infection. The strength in his arm was severely limited because of the infection that had him hospitalized.
He had two goals and 28 points this season.
Do I expect him back next season? Personally, I do. But that's just a gut feeling.
