The Komets are in the process of signing free-agent defenseman Colten Hayes, 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, who played 48 ECHL games last season with Stockton and Reading, tallying three goals, 23 points and 90 penalty minutes.
He should be on the ice Tuesday but it's unknown if his paperwork will get processed in time for him to play Friday at Kalamazoo, Mich.
On Tuesday, the Komets are holding an open house for season-ticket holders at the Lutheran Health SportsCenter's Thirsty Penguin from 6 to 8 p.m. The entire team will be there and there will be prizes. (See the flyer above.)
Finally, things continue to be murky with the CHL's Quad City Mallards, who haven't yet practiced despite being scheduled to open their season this week. Click here to read more.
