  • Szydlowski returns to Komets
    Right wing Shawn Szydlowski has agreed to terms and will return to the Komets in 2014-15, the club announced today.
  • A goalie guess; look at lines
    Roman Will would seem to be the most likely fit to wind up in the ECHL as a goalie, but he's spent the last two seasons in the Czech Republic after an impressive junior career in Moncton. If I had to guess, it would be him.
  • K's sign 2 forwards
    The Komets finalized the signing of forward Thomas Frazee, who had 24 goals and 47 points in 60 games last season for Quad City of the CHL, and also announced that they have added forward Brett Beebe to the roster.

Trade completed

The Komets completed their trade for forward Brett Lyon, who had been with Bakersfield.

A 22-year-old, 6-foot-2, 195-pound tough guy, he had more than 20 major penalties for fighting last season, while totaling five goals, 10 points and 218 penalty minutes in 57 games with Bakersfield and Orlando.

The Komets gave up cash to get him.
