The Komets have signed forward Justin Hodgman, a 19-year-old forward, who had 37 goals and 80 points in 64 games this season with Erie of the Ontario Hockey League.
He is expected to be in the lineup tonight, when the Komets play at Port Huron, Mich.

- It's just not as much fun writing about a hockey team from Danbury, Conn., if I can't mention ties to organized crime and wire-tapping of phones. But hockey is back in Danbury, where the United Hockey League used to have a team named the Trashers that played against the Komets and was alleged to have coerced an official with the help of UHL commissioner Richard Brosal. As for the new team, it will play in the new Eastern Professional Hockey League. And get this: The general manager is none other than Brendan Tedstone, the 6-foot-5, roughly 375-pound ex-UHL goon.
- The Flint Generals could soon get a boost from the return of goaltender Chad Alban.
