Since defenseman Nick Schaus was recalled to Norfolk of the American Hockey League and won't be back this weekend, the Komets need another player. They have called up forward Mike Hoban from Dayton of the Federal Hockey League. Hoban, who was in training camp with the Komets, has eight goals and 14 points in nine games this season with the Demonz (stupid name), and is plus-8.
Why Hoban and not Brayden Metz who leads the FHL in scoring?
``We just went with Hoban because he's a little more of an energy guy,'' Komets General Manager David Franke said. ``No real reason why one over the other. We just thought Hoban would make a better fit right now with what we need.''
In other news, Eric Giosa skated for the second day this week at practice. We'll see next week if that works out if it updates his goal for coming off injured reserve.
