K's expect to get 3 players from Vegas, David Franke says

Komets general manager David Franke expects to get three players from the Vegas Golden Knights, including a goaltender, but it’s early in the process to know for sure.

Last season, the Komets got only goalie Zach Fucale and forward Matthew Weis through the affiliation.

There remains a good chance the Komets will have a less-formal working agreement with another NHL team that would potentially bring more players. The Komets haven’t publicly acknowledged it, but that team is the Los Angeles Kings.

I asked about Jake Kamrass and J.C. Campagna. They remain possibilities to re-sign with the Komets. Regardless, Fort Wayne owns their rights.
