Goaltender John Muse, who stopped 18 of 21 shots in his debut with the Komets, has been called up to Charlotte of the American Hockey League.
This is the third straight season in which Muse, who manned the net in the 4-3 shootout loss to Toledo on Saturday night, has been called to Charlotte for action. He is 17-10-3 with the Checkers.
This means Cody Reichard will start in net this Saturday against the Cincinnati Cyclones for the Komets, who will get Max Strang from Bloomington to be the backup.
Fort Wayne, however, has been assigned right wing Shawn Szydlowski by the AHL's Rochester Americans. He has 60 games of experience with Rochester -- totaling eight assists. He spent most of last season with Fort Worth of the CHL, where he had 12 goals and 32 points in 52 games.
He is 6 feet tall, 208 pounds.
