The Komets also announced they have signed Alex Boak, 26, and Adam Pawlick, 25, both of whom played their college hockey at Clarkson University. Boak, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound defenseman, played 31 American Hockey League games last year with Wilkes-Barre Scranton, scoring one goal and six points with 80 penalty minutes. He also played 14 ECHL games with Wheeling.
Pawlick, a 6-0, 190-pound forward, was a first-team all-Southern Professional Hockey League last season after scoring 32 goals and 66 points in 56 games to earn the league scoring title. He scored 27 goals and 41 points in 56 games two seasons ago as a rookie.
The Komets have 12 players on their preseason roster — one goaltender, four defensemen and seven forwards.
