As expected, recently signed defenseman Brent Henley is in the lineup for tonight's game between the Komets and the visiting Evansville IceMen.

At 6-foot-7, 250 pounds, he'll be the biggest player on the ice.

These are the only two teams in the 14-team CHL that have played only one game, which was, of course, a 5-0 Evansville victory Oct. 22.

The referee is Brett Sheva. The linesmen are Matthew Tyree and Fort Wayne's Chris Hoy.
