Tailing the Komets

Tam is out for a while

Komets General Manager David Franke just said defenseman Mikael Tam is out until spring and will need shoulder surgery sometime in the next two weeks. He suffered the injury on opening night on the first shift against Indy and then played the rest of the game and then the next night.

The Komets are expecting Matt Krug to return to the lineup sometime in the next few weeks. 

Do not adjust your set!

Komets and Wings are playing on orange ice tonight.

A couple of updates: Mikael Tam has a bad shoulder injury and is going to be out for a significant amount of time.

Bob Chase has a really bad cold and may miss the weekend, so Shane Albahrani will be filling in at least tonight and tomorrow.

TRANSACTIONS: Francois Tremblay, Reid Petryk loaned to (ECHL).

Reid Petryk is a 6-2, 210-pound center. This means the Komets will have to make two roster moves as well to get under the salary cap.

Komets released goaltender Joe Howe and put forward C.J. Severyn on reserve. The ECHL says they have also put forward Marcus Power on reserve, which is interesting since no one has ever said he's been assigned here or signed.

So what do you think so far?

I am very impressed with the defensive corp. Size, skill and skating and should just keep getting better. I could see the Komets keeping eight D with one on reserve and rotating them all season because of call-ups and injuries. There's not a weak link in the bunch.

Gary Graham is not satisfied with his forwards' balance and consistency yet, but they've scored four goals in each of the first two games. He's right, but they'd have killed to do that last year for two games in a row. Still need to work more defensively.
