The Komets also announced Tuesday that defenseman Steven Oleksy has decided not to join Fort Wayne's roster and has been placed on waivers. Komets general manager David Franke said Oleksy felt he was going to have a difficult time making the team and is looking for a spot in the ECHL.
``I disagreed with him but this is something he thought about,'' Franke said. ``We'll accommodate him and probably look for another defensman. It has to be an American kid for immigration reasons to get him all filed and signed up.''
Will he have any trouble finding one?
``I've got a zillion emails from players.''
Franke said an extra defenseman is the only position he's still trying for fill for the training camp roster.
