Matt Firman with Chicago Wolves, Mickey Lang with Lake Erie, John Muse with Providence, Cody Reichard with Nashville and Joe Hartman with Grand Rapids have all been released and will be in Fort Wayne when training camp starts Sunday. The only possible doubtful is Drew Olson who was with Tampa Bay which sent him to Syracuse. That's one reason why William Lacasse has been invited to camp.
As for Paul McIlveen, the Komets aren't talking at all, and if they aren't denying it, it usually means the paperwork hasn't arrived yet.
There might also be another high-scoring forward on the way eventually.
There will be players who might not make this team who could find a spot somewhere else in the ECHL, especially among the forwards.
