Lovell activated

Defenseman Jamie Lovell's immigration work papers have been approved by the U.S. Government and he will make his debut with the Komets on Friday night at Rapid City, S.D. He will take the spot of forward Tom Mele, who will miss both games at Rapid City because of a death in the family. The Komets also traveled without forward Jesse Bennefield (foot) and defenseman Tristin Llewellyn (concussion symptoms).

By the way, the Komets said they don't have any interest at this time in Patrik Levesque, who was waived by Tulsa recently. He had three goals and five points in three games.
