...and announced here last week, Jonathan Goodwin and Mike Dombkiewicz have now officially signed.
Here's what Komets General Manager David Franke had to say about each:
On Dombkiewicz: ``Mike came in at the end of last season and really gave us an offensive spark from the defensive position. We thought he was definitely one of the guys we wanted back, and he made it quite apparent to me before he left that this is where he wanted to play. I think he's going to find stability with our franchise.''
On Goodwin: ``That was pretty much a no-brainer. He was our leading goal scorer last year and has a knack for putting the puck in the net. He told me he'll come into camp in probably the best shape he's been in. He's going to be one of our go-to guys that we're going to look to score 35 to 40 goals.''
As for Tom Lawson, he told the Komets he expects to sign with Pittsburgh or Chicago to play in their minor league systems.
As for affiliations, they are probably not going to be affiliations but working agreements, focusing on two-way players and the opportunity for some Komets to go to training camps. Bridgeport and Hershey already have Class AA affiliates in the ECHL.
