Komets trade rights to Rizk for Hughes

The Komets have traded the rights to forward J.M. Rizk to Alaska to complete the deal that brought them center Bobby Hughes earlier in the week.

Rizk had 19 goals and 15 assists for Fort Wayne in 66 games last year, his second pro season, the team said in a statement.

The Komets acquired Hughes from the Aces on Monday in exchange for future considerations.

The team also announced its road game at Kalamazoo on Wednesday, March 5, has been changed to Sunday, March 9, setting up a weekend doubleheader there, since the teams are playing in Kalamazoo on Saturday, March 8.
