The Komets are going to have at least one very difficult decision to make next week in terms of their roster. Currently, the Komets are at the league-maximum with 19 healthy bodies. Jason Kean and Brent Rumble are on injured reserve, Lance Galbraith is coming back off team suspension, and Justin Laverdiere will also be activated. That means at least two players have to go on injured reserve or be released. Kelly Miller will be released to return to coaching in Toledo.
The Komets can have as many as seven veterans, at least four rookies and eight tweeners. The rookies currently are Laverdiere, Michael Wiggins, Josh VanderBreggen, Kevin Kurk, David Carpentier and A.J. Bozoian. The veterans are Colin Chaulk, P.C. Drouin, Troy Neumeier, Rob Guinn, Kevin St. Pierre, Guy Dupuis and Andrew Luciuk. The tweeners are Mark Smith, Jonathan Goodwin, Lance Galbraith, David Hukalo, Matt Hunter, Jeff Worlton and Ryan Jorde. Kean and Rumble are tweeners.
