Tailing the Komets

Komets sent Wolfe "North to Alaska"

The Komets completed a deal late Wednesday, sending rookie forward Greg Wolfe to the Alaska Aces. This finishes a deal for future considerations between the teams as the Komets acquired the rights to forward C.J. Severyn from Alaska on Aug. 26.

"We weren't nuts about losing him, but Severyn is a proven player in this league," Komets General Manager David Franke said. "I think Greg Wolfe can go out to Alaska and do well to start his pro career."

A Michigan State product, Wolfe played seven games in the playoffs with Reading, against the Komets, scoring three goals.

Franke said negotiations with Severyn are continuing, but it now looks possible he could end up on a two-way contract with Lake Erie of the American Hockey League. Because the Monsters are affiliated with the Komets, he could still play in Fort Wayne this season.

Boo this move. Kid came in against us in the playoffs and netted three goals. He was one of the players I was excited to see develop. I understand we gotta lose somebody to complete the deal but it woul dhave at least set better with me if Severyn had actually signed already.

Keep an eye on the kid... I have a feeling he will do well.

Cant wait for camp!

Severyn is locked in to be here at some point no matter what happens.

Yes the K's own his ECHL rights. I know. That still doesnt mean he cant go all Rutherford on us if he chooses...

Am I wrong?

Not being negative just curious.

It's theoretically possible, but not going to happen. He still has the NHL dream.
