Komets captain Colin Chaulk said he feels well today, continues to pass his concussion testing and rode an exercise bike for 25 minutes.

Chaulk didn't return to the game but also hasn't failed a concussion test.

Had he, we wouldn't be discussing the possibility of him playing Friday, in accordance with most concussion guidelines I've seen outside of Rapid City, S.D.
