Fort Wayne, IN ---The Komets announced Monday that skater Chris Auger is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the 2012-13 season due to an injury sustained in a home game against Evansville Saturday night, Oct. 20th.
Auger, 24, had started his third pro year scoring a goal and an assist for two points over the first four games of the season. Last year Auger appeared in his first season with the Komets scoring 28 goals and 59 points in 57 games before tallying 10 goals and 22 points in 18 playoff games en route to the CHL Presidents’ Cup Championship with Fort Wayne.
An M.R.I. was performed and a torn A.C.L. was detected. It has been determined that reconstructive surgery is necessary and Auger will utilize the remainder of the 2012-13 season to recover.
The Komets will skate two home games this weekend. The Gwinnett Gladiators visit for a back-to-back Fort Wayne home double-header beginning Friday night at 8:00 followed by Saturday night’s game at 7:30.
