JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

The Komets have claimed forward Justin MacDonald off waivers from the Adirondack Thunder, for which he was scoreless in five games, and he is in the lineup at Memorial Coliseum against the Wheeling Nailers. In 16 games this season with Evansville of the lower-level Southern Professional Hockey League, he had 12 goals and 24 points, after totaling four goals and eight points in 29 games last season with Cincinnati and Indy of the ECHL.

With MacDonald, the Komets are able to field a full 18-player lineup. They are without Jamie Schaafsma (illness), Justin Hodgman (shoulder) and Zac Larraza (leg).
