Tailing the Komets: One more player released

As the ECHL’s regular-season roster deadline passed at 3 p.m., the Fort Wayne Komets decided to let one more player go. That leaves them with 20 players remaining on the roster — 11 forwards, seven defensemen and two goaltenders.

The Komets have placed rookie defenseman Mitch Nylen on waivers. The former Sacred Heart captain was plus-1 with three shots on goal in three exhibition games, and he seemed to get better with each game. Depending on where he ends up, it’s a safe bet he may be back with the Komets should they need an extra blueliner because of injuries or call-ups.

That leaves the Komets with seven defensemen on the current roster heading into Saturday’s season-opener against Toledo.
