The Komets, who had been without a captain since trading Nick Tuzzolino to Elmira on Nov. 25, have made Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock the captain.
He will don the C tonight against the Toledo Walleye.
Coach Gary Graham informed the players Thursday night.
Since trading Tuzzolino for Jordon Southorn, the Komets had used three alternate captains -- Schrock, Brandon Marino and Mickey Lang.
Schrock hails from Fort Wayne.
