Mike Komisarek (eye) skated with his teammates on Wednesday.
He didn't play on Tuesday after bits of his stick got into his eye Monday. "Shooting some pucks after practice, missed the net a few times and took it out on my stick," Komisarek said when explaining the strange injury. "Next thing you know, stick breaks and a bunch of graphite goes in my eye and my face. Had to go see the eye specialist. Had to have it removed and have a stitch in the eyeball. Mark that down as a first for me. Something I don't want to do again. Bad accident. At the end of the day, don't take it out on your stick and try to hit the net. Not the stick's fault." It's good to see he has a sense of humor about the incident and he's been cleared to return to the lineup for Thursday's contest. However, coach Randy Carlyle may want to keep Cody Franson and Mark Fraser in after they both played well against Buffalo on Tuesday night.
