The American Hockey League's Hershey Bears have assigned defenseman/forward Will Graber to the Komets.
He had one goal and four points in 20 games last season for the Bears, as a rookie out of Dartmouth, and he also played 11 games for South Carolina of the ECHL and had an assist. He wasn't in the finals series against the Komets.
At 25, he’s 6-foot-5, 190 pounds.
He was scoreless in two AHL preseason games this season.
He played forward in college and defense last season. It sounds as if he'll start as a defenseman with the Komets, perhaps quarterbacking the power play.
The Komets have released forward Tanner Hildebrandt.
