Komets General Manager David Franke said forward Daniel Goneau had a doctor's appointment today to check out his broken cheekbone and will be able to play this weekend. Goneau suffered the injury when he was hit by a shot during the first period Friday in Quad City. He missed Saturday and Sunday's games, but will be able to return to the lineup Friday in Kalamazoo wearing either a cage mask or a full shield. He will not require surgery.
Franke also said that Goneau was placed on the 7-day injured reserve list last Saturday, meaning he can come off for Friday's game. A.J. Bozoian is day-to-day on team suspension and will resume full skating by mid-week. Jonas Gabrielsen is on the 10-day list and will also be eligible to come off by Friday.
Gabrielsen, who tried out for the team as a defenseman, has said he prefers to play forward and doesn't want to play defense any more.
