That's because he has been called up to Cleveland Monsters of the AHL! Szydlowski is second in the ECHL with 21 goals, third in assists with 28 and second in points with 49. He's been the Komets' Most Valuable Player the last two seasons.

The transaction has not been officially announced yet.

"The guy's been fighting, scoring and having a great year," Komets coach Gary Graham said. "It's only a matter of time probably before guys like Mike Cazzola and Kyle Thomas get an opportunity. We've got some guys who are playing really well this year and that's what you deal with. I'm excited to see guys like Devin Mantha and Mason Baptista to get back into the lineup here. That will be really good for for the team because they work so hard. This is why you need depth with organizations to handle those kind of things. It will be a good challenge for us facing a good Tulsa team on Friday."

There's been no indication yet if Cleveland will allow Szydlowski to play in the ECHL All-Star Game next week in Adirondack, but this is why the league smartly named alternates to the rosters when they were announced last week.
