Brett Smith is questionable for Friday with a shoulder problem, and Colin Chaulk is having some more concussion problems and may need to go on IR. Bryant Molle has been activated from suspension, and it's likely Jesse Bennefield will be activated for Friday's game. Chaulk can go on the IR retro-active to Feb. 14 when he was injured.
The Komets are also looking for some amateur players to bring in, but that would likely not be until the playoffs, General Manager David Franke said. They can add up to two amateur players in the playoffs and they do not count against the salary cap or the regular roster -- unless they have played in the regular season, and then they have to count. The other benefit is that amateur players do not have to be named at the roster deadline date.
That's how the Komets used Tom Mele last year who did not play in the regular season, but did play in the playoffs.
So the Komets may have to play some more defensive gems this weekend.
By the way, they got home this morning at about 11:15, just a shade less than 12 hours on the bus from Tulsa.
