The Fort Wayne Komets have been speaking with 19-year-old center Justin Hodgman about signing with the team, but despite a report out of the Erie Times-News, general manager David Franke said nothing's official yet.
"He is a kid that we're looking at, but he still needs to take a physical and no paperwork has been sent into the league," Franke said.
Hodgman, who has 34 goals and 76 points in 71 games with the Erie Otters, could join the Komets next week, Franke said. The Komets are permitted to sign two amateur players who don't count against their 19-man roster limit.
