Answering questions on Komets' Cescon

JUSTIN A. COHN | The Journal Gazette

In case you looked up the statistics of defenseman Craig Cescon, who re-signed with the Komets today, and noticed that some websites had him listed as not having played this season — not the case.

He had been skating in Romania.

That leads me to my next point — he does not qualify as veteran in the ECHL.

So, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Cody Sol will be out longer than expected. A Dec. 14 return had initially been hoped for by the Komets.

Not all overseas leagues count in the veteran games-played marker; just the highest tiers.

Cescon last played for the Komets in 2010-11.

Also, Shawn Szydlowski has been out this week with an illness so I don’t know if he’ll play Friday at Wheeling, West Virginia.
