The Fort Wayne Komets made a trade Thursday, dealing forward David Friedmann to Wichita for former Komet Brett Perlini. After scoring a career-high 15 goals and 34 points with the Komets last season, Perlini, 26, was dealt to Rapid City to complete a player-to-be-named-later deal last summer. After scoring nine goals and 12 points in 25 games with the Rush, he was traded recently to Wichita where he has no points in two games.

"Brett had the best years of his pro career in Fort Wayne, and I know he's excited to be coming back here," Komets General Manager David Franke said. "This is where he wants to play. He's a Michigan kid and has good friends on the team. He's a solid player and he's a good faceoff man and we could use that. We're familiar with him and he's very anxious to get there."

Franke said he expects Perlini to be in the lineup Saturday for the Komets' home game with Quad City.

Friedmann, 23, has played 35 games with the Komets over two seasons, scoring 11 goals and 17 points. He's been wanting more consistent ice time which he should receive with the Thunder. The Komets have been using him frequently as the 10th forward.
