Cheek to rejoin Komets

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

LOVELAND, Colorado – Big news for the Komets. Forward Trevor Cheek is returning. He had been with Tucson of the higher-level American Hockey League.

General manager David Franke said it wasn't easy to arrange since the Komets had to get their roster turned in by 3 p.m. today, and Tucson had just been eliminated from its playoffs late Friday.

Cheek won't join the Komets until Game 3, which will be Wednesday in Fort Wayne. 

The Western Conference finals against the Colorado Eagles begin at 9 p.m. tonight.

Cheek had nine goals and 20 points in 20 games with the Komets during the regular season.
