Just when you thought the Komets might actually have a full 18-player lineup, nope.
Forward Brett Smith isn't playing tonight at Evansville because of a shoulder injury.
Also out are forwards Colin Chaulk (concussion symptoms), Jesse Bennefield (leg/personal issues), goaltender Alex Kangas (hip) and defenseman Dustin Molle (groin).
Defenseman David Starenky is going to try and play despite a hand injury and forward Artem Podshendyalov was in warm-ups but I don't know how much he'll play because of an undisclosed injury.
The good news is that goaltender Nick Boucher is back after serving his four-game suspension for his part in a brawl Feb. 17 with Bloomington.
