Komets forward David Hukalo, last year's Playoff MVP, is expected to return to the Komets' lineup in about 10 days, coach Al Sims said.
Hukalo (back) has seven goals and 13 points in 22 games this season, but he hasn't played since early January.
"I think he'll be a huge addition," Sims said. "He adds to the offensive end...and defensively, he's one of the best players in the league and gives you an advantage at both ends of the ice."
- During the last 10 games, 10 different players have scored for the Komets, totaling 36 goals. Apparently, the offensive woes have been solved. "I think we're getting some bounces now," Sims said, "but the big things is when you look at the diversity of the scoring, everyone is doing it. Everyone has a confident feeling they can put the puck in the net.... Our scoring has really been spread out."
