Wow, any chances he could be on loan to FW?

I'm betting it's a rehab assignment although I don't know what was wrong with him in the first place.

I rule out nothing with Justin Hodgman, LOL. He could show up any second, but I do know the Komets have not talked with him since the start of the season. Reading is running away with its divison and Toronto is in fourth place.

21 points in 31 one games??!?! And the kid gets sent down? Doesn't make sense to me, but what do I know.

Pretty sure he got sent down for conditioning because hasn't he been hurt since December? Thought I heard that somewhere.

It'd be great to see him back in a K's uniform, but I believe there's 0% chance of him coming back. Be more likely he gets called up to the NHL than sent here.

I've watched a few Marlies games and I think one of the announcers mentioned him being hurt as the reason he wasn't playing during one of them, but gave no details. I searched and couldn't find anything back then but haven't looked since.

Reading and Toronto sound like ideal places for him.

He was sent there on a loan from Toronto. Probably just a rehab assignment. He hasn't skated for them since 12/29/10. http://theahl.com/stats/gamebygame.php?seasonId=34&id=3483

Hodgman has not played since 12/29/10. My guess is that this is a conditioning assignment.

Wow, check this story out... Joel Martin (who started the year in Odessa) was signed by the Islanders to a 2-way contract and assigned to Bridgeport a couple weeks back. Well, the Islanders goalie gets hurt in pregame, the Ilanders call up Martin who races there to be on the bench by the 3rd period... Unreal!

Good for Joel, I'm sure his fan club up in KZoo is going crazy. Never thought of him as NHL talent but best of luck to him

just a fan

I talked to Justin about 2 weeks ago he had a fracture in his leg.
