Two sources have told The Journal Gazette that the Komets have acquired forward Brett Lyon from the Bakersfield Condors.
Komets officials declined to comment.
I don't know what the Komets gave up, but based on what I'm hearing it sounds like it was for cash, not a player.
Lyon, 22, is scoreless with 18 penalty minutes in four games with Bakersfield this season. He has also played one game with Abbotsford of the American Hockey League.
Last season, with Bakersfield and Orlando of the ECHL, he had five goals, 10 points and 190 penalty minutes.
This would give the Komets another tough guy; Lyon had 22 fighting majors last season. He is 6-foot-2, 195 pounds.
