Matt Hunter has been played on the 10-day injured reserve list with a separated shoulder. He suffered the injury Sunday when he was hit by Kalamazoo's Nick Bootland. Komets General Manager David Franke said the team won't know until later if Hunter might be able to rehab the shoulder enough to play later or if he'll require surgery which will end his season.
The Komets have sent a tape of the hit to United Hockey League Director of Hockey Operations Brad Jones for review.
``We feel that it was squarely a hit from behind into the boards,'' Franke said. "The fact that the kid has a separated shoulder, we want Brad to take a look at it and see if there's reason for further discipline.''
David Hukalo is still day-to-day with a sprained wrist. His status for Wednesday's game at Motor City is questionable.
