* Rookie center Travis Whitehead will not be with the Komets on Friday as he goes home for a funeral.
* Here's what the lines look like so far:
Colin Chaulk, Konstantin Shafranov and Matt Syroczynski
Leo Thomas, P.C. Drouin, Evgeny Saidachev
Rick Varone, Travis Whitehead, Vince Laise
Brad MacMillan, Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, Jimmy Bonneau
Guy Dupuis, Bobby Phillips
Kevin Bertram, Danko Mironovic
Blair Stayzer, Keith Rodger
Brandon Warner, Matt Woodard
Coach Al Sims said he may move Schrock up to center Varone and Laise this weekend and the defensive pairings will likely be Dupuis and a rookie, Bertram and a rookie and Mironovic and a rookie with Woodard, Rodger and Phillips playing.
