Tomas Klempa had spent time on the Komets' first line this season. Now he's spending some time on the waiver wire.
The Komets let go of the rookie forward, who had three goals, five points and a team-worst minus-6 rating in 24 games.
He will be replaced on the roster by center Rick Varone, who is returning from a knee injury. And goaltender Tim Haun is back in the lineup for tonight's game against Bloomington, after serving his seven-game suspension for a baseball-like swing of the stick toward Port Huron's Derek Patrosso.
It's already been an eventful evening at Memorial Coliseum. As part of the Komets' partnership with the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, an owl got loose in the lobby tonight for a time. And one of the Jeep Girls has been taken to the hospital with appendicitis.
