A few days after the Komets assured me they had no interest in signing Brad MacMillan -- a prospect scoffed at by many Ice Chips readers -- he signed with Idaho of the ECHL.
Had MacMillan been signed in the Central Hockey League, he would have had to serve the final nine games of his 22-game suspension for his part in a preseason fracas between Odessa and Colorado.
MacMillan had been with Colorado.
As for tonight's game between the Komets and Missouri, Fort Wayne remains without Mathieu Curadeau (upper body), Leo Thomas (ankle), Brandon Warner (shoulder) and Chris Francis (called up to Springfield).
Keith Rodger is back in the lineup after bereavement leave.
