Daniel Maggio, who has five goals and 19 points in 34 games this season with the Komets, has signed a tryout agreement with Tucson of the higher-level American Hockey League.
Maggio, who has a plus-14 rating, has split time between playing forward and defenseman for the Komets this season.
Tucson and Fort Wayne are both minor-league affiliates of the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes, but Maggio was not property of the Coyotes so a tryout agreement was needed for him to be called up.
Maggio has 160 games of AHL experience.
The Komets play Friday at Toledo.
