New Komet defenseman Brad Walch signed to a tryout agreement. Played for the Saginaw Spirit of the OHL, 23 years old, had some nice stats.

Komets seem to be attracted to these players who missed last season due to injury...

...and that may be a good thing, JR.
This may be an example of not being affiliated actually helps. My thinking is this: An affiliated team has to sift through their signings plus any and all players sent down to them. They may not have time to evaluate free agents who are coming off injuries.
On the other hand, the Komets can take a look at good quality players who have had some misfortune. Maybe this kid is a bust, but maybe he is a "gem".
His pedigree sounds promising, his size seems very adequate, and I think the K's can use the help on defense.
If Hit's remarks about the possibility of another player from a "higher league" comes to fruition, I think the K's may be a whole lot of fun.
