Not exactly what I was told by several other people Saturday, but here's what Komets general manager David Franke said today about forward Chris Auger, who is returning from Norfolk of the American Hockey League: "He had a lower-body injury and was going to miss some time, so the decision was made to just come back now. He should be on the ice here late in the week."
