The Komets have already lost defenseman Dustin Molle for the season with a groin injury. Now the fans are nervous about his brother, Bryant.
Bryant Molle, 6-foot-3, had a second-period fight with Quad City's 6-8 Taylor Vichorek and appeared to injure his shoulder falling to the ice. Molle hasn't yet returned and the Komets trail 3-1.
Not only is Bryant Molle a pivotal player for Fort Wayne, but they would have to find a suitable replacement before Friday because players must appear in three games to be eligible for the playoffs.
