Komets coach Al Sims addressed the team today, informing them that he has made center Colin Chaulk the team captain.
Chaulk will make his season debut with the team Friday against the Evansville IceMen at Memorial Coliseum.
Chaulk, who turns 34 on Friday, spent the first half of the season with HC Alleghe in Italy. He guided the Komets to four championships between 2003 and 2010, earning team MVP honors four times.
Defenseman Guy Dupuis was stripped of the captaincy last month.
The Komets have also signed defenseman Dustin Molle, who played 18 games with Idaho of the ECHL the last two seasons. He takes the place of defenseman Brandon Warner, on 30-day injured reserve with a separated shoulder.
