The first returning member will be top goal scorer Thomas Beauregard. The 26 year old will be playing in his first game in 21 days after suffering an upper-body injury earlier this month tomorrow night against division rival Kalamazoo. Beauregard took to Twitter to announce his participation:
very excited to be back in the lineup tomorrow!!

The reason it took so long for the 5’11” right winger to get back is he was placed on the 21-day Injured Reserve List which forced him to remain unavailable until after the time was completed.
The Komets re-signed former winger Matt Syroczynski this past week and is expected to be in the line-up this weekend. This is his third stint with the club. Syroczynski was named the MVP of the Komets 2010 Turner Cup Championship while a member of the IHL before the merge with the CHL.
Team captain Colin Chaulk is still a few weeks away from getting back on the ice as he is still recovering from a foot infection, but is healing quickly.
For those wondering why Josh Brittain was in town, he was only getting his car to take it back to Norfolk.
There is one more piece of bad news. Ryan Lasch will be playing over in Europe the rest of the season. When asked by Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette’s Justin Cohn, Komet teammates responded that his style of play was more suited there.
