Goaltender Ben Meisner, who played last season for the Komets, has signed to play with Allen of the CHL this season.
Meisner was 14-6-2 with a 2.39 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage, then led Fort Wayne to the Eastern Conference semifinals. When the Komets signed Pat Nagle this summer, the Komets no longer pursued him for this season.
They are expecting a second goalie to be assigned by NHL's Colorado Avalanche. Meisner had played three ECHL seasons with Utah and Fort Wayne and this will be his first CHL experience.
