Scratch one tough guy.
The Colorado Eagles announced Wednesday they've signed former Komet Brad MacMillan, who accumulated 14 goals and 464 penalty minutes while skating on back-to-back Turner Cup teams in 2008-09 and 2009-2010. MacMillan, 5-10 and 200 pounds, led the Komets in penalty minutes in both seasons.
In other news ...
* Komets general manager David Franke said today the Komets are "very close to getting something done" with team captain Guy Dupuis. He expects Dupuis to be signed by the end of the week or the first of next week.
* Franke said he's also scheduled to meet with Brandon Warner on Friday. And the Komets are talking as well to Frankie DeAngelis.
That would return almost intact the bulk of the Komets backline, as Danko Mironovic, Bobby Phillips and Keith Rodger have already re-signed.
