Komets General Manager David Franke said Colin Chaulk is in the hospital with a recurrence of his foot staph infection. He said it's being treated with intravenous anti-biotics and has not required surgery at this time. This pushes back Chaulk's target date of Jan. 18 for returning to the lineup. Chaulk has also been suffering from the flu.
Franke said Luca Caputi may be about a week away from returning from a shoulder injury.
