I asked Komets general manager David Franke if the Komets have any interest in bringing in defenseman Steven Later, who was released by Missouri.
You will remember Later from his many battles against the Komets when he was with the Muskegon Lumberjacks: Click here for statistics.
Anyway, Franke said, "Not at this time." But I will admit, there was a little hesitation in this voice, which says to me, they have thought about it.
The Komets still have 22 players in camp and must be down to 20 by Thursday. Those 22 include forward Artem Podshendyalov, who joined the Komets today after solving the problems with his immigration work papers.
Joel Gasper is now on the open market -- click here -- but I'm not entirely sure he would fit in with the Komets.
