Komets forward David Hukalo, last year's Playoff MVP, is expected to return to the Komets' lineup in about 10 days, coach Al Sims said.
Bloomington PrairieThunder forward Mike Liambas will be out 6 to 8 weeks after emergency surgery to repair lacerated tendons in his right arm, suffered during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Komets.
There are 3,862 tickets out for tonight's game between the All-American Hockey League's Evansville Icemen and Battle Creek Revolution, according to Coliseum General Manager Randy Brown.
Here’s the good news for the Port Huron Icehawks tonight: They were only a touchdown and a field goal away from winning the game.9-1? Are you kidding?
The Muskegon Chronicle has a story in which the Lumberjacks' owners confirm that a move out of professional hockey and to the United States Hockey League is a possibility.
Well, that was startling, to say the least.For almost 52 minutes the Komets were so serenely in command of the Dayton Gems tonight I was, I confess to say, already composing my game story. Something about Nick Boucher’s first shutout of the season.
While I was watching the Komets take a 1-0 lead over Dayton in the first period tonight … I asked Komets president Michael Franke about the rumors aloft that Muskegon might be contemplating a jump to the juniors in the USHL.
OK, so last week I took some shots at those hideous “Exorcist” Green jerseys Quad City was wearing, during my stint as Justin’s stunt double. So it’s only fair I turn the tables on what the Komets are wearing tonight.
Claude Noel, who was named interim coach of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday, has ties to the Komets.

I know I defended the Bloomington PrairieThunder, after the Flint Generals signed a bunch of goons before what would be a heated game recently. (I still think that was a little much by the Generals.) But trouble does certainly seem to be following the PrairieThunder these days.

God bless those Quad City Mallards. They may not know how to dress, but they sure have an impeccable sense of timing.
