The Komets added three defensemen to the roster for next season, re-signing William Lacasse and Matthew Maione while Drew Daniels has agreed to terms, completing a trade for future considerations made last season with Utah.

Maione, 23, made his pro debut with Fort Wayne last season scoring three assists in 11 games before dishing four assists in 11 playoff games.

Daniels, 25, started last season with Cincinnati skating 44 games (6a, 7pts) before finishing the year appearing in 13 games with Utah.
