Bato joins the team as they are fighting for a playoff spot in MISL.
"We have a tough road ahead in a tight division," coach Kim Roentved said in a press release from the team. "Hopefully, Bato will be that spark we need to put us where we want to be at the end of the season."
Radoncic will be in uniform this Saturday, as the Comets take on the Norfolk SharX at the Scope Arena at 6 p.m. Central.
The Comets are back at home next Wednesday to battle the Syracuse Silver Knights. That night is Gino Schiraldi Bobblehead night, the first 1,500 fans inside the arena will get a bobblehead of one of the greatest players to ever wear a Comets uniform. For tickets and information call (816) 478-2255.
