Talked to a long-time hockey official this week who told me that the European leagues have dropped a lot of the limits on import players. It had been two or three per team before this.

Ks sign four

From a Komets press release: 

Talked to David Franke

He said the Komets may announce some player signings this afternoon or tomorrow, depending on when the paperwork gets in. He also said they are getting closer to announcing something on an affiliation.

As expected, Aaron Clarke is retiring, though the Komets made him a strong offer. Joe Hartman is going to either retire or maybe play in Colorado where his wife got a job.

Konstantin Shafranov is in Russia visiting family and will sit down to talk with the Komets when he returns. They definitely want him back as an assistant coach.
