No signings today

Komets general manager David Franke said there will be no announcements of signings today, but said that Chris Auger, Jean-Michel Rizk and Stephon Thorne all remain in the mix. (I've heard they've agreed to terms.)

He also said Brent Henley is being spoken to, as well.

As for Thomas Beauregard, he said that has cooled off but didn't rule it out.

And, of course, we're still waiting for finalization of a Charlie Effinger contract, but Franke said nothing has been finalized there, either.
