The Komets have two rookies in on tryouts -- defenseman Nick Tuzzolino and forward Michael George -- and the team plans to sign them both, general manager David Franke said.
Tuzzolino, 6-foot-5, 225 pounds, was selected in the seventh round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He had been with Sudbury of the Ontario Hockey League, where he had three goals, 11 points and 41 penalty minutes in 26 games last season.
George, 6 feet, 190 pounds, had 35 goals and 74 points in 55 games last season in juniors with Battlefords.
The two players who had been in tryouts, rookies Brock Becker and Andrew Dawe, have been excused.
By the way, you're going to laugh and everybody's telling me I'm wrong, but does anyone else think Kevin Hansen (below left) looks like George Clooney. Seriously, look at Hansen when he has his helmet on.
