The Komets have placed Maxime Gravelle on waivers to activate Colin Chaulk for Wednesday's game. Gravelle had four goals and 14 points in 59 games and was minus-3 with 60 penalty minutes.
"It's the worst day of the year for me," Komets coach Al Sims said. "You have a guy who is committed here for 60 games, and was a big part of our team for most of it, especially for energy-wise and things like that, but we had to make a decision. Obviously, it was going to be hard no matter who it was. Hopefully Max gets picked up by somebody, and if not hopefully I can get him to another team in another league. He definitely can play and showed he can play at this level."
I told him as far as next year goes, don't count us out. I know this is tough on you, but I thought you played really well, and there's a lot of upside potential in your game. Maybe you can come back here next year.
It's just how good you are going lately. We feel that we've got the best 21 guys now that we can have. That's all I can say I guess.
