Streaking K's nab awards, plus league news

The Komets are the hottest team in the IHL -- they are on an 8-0-1 streak -- and it's garnering the team awards.

Tim Haun was selected IHL Goaltender of the Week for the second straight time. And center Colin Chaulk took Player of the Week honors.

Haun was 2-0-0 with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .960 save percentage. His 38-save shutout over Flint on Friday was his second straight shutout, and his 15 victories this season matches a personal best set with Huntsville of the Southern Professional Hockey League in 2008-09.

Chaulk had three goals and seven points in three games, giving him a team-leading 39 points for the season.

Greg Rajan of the Corpus Christi Caller-Times tells me the team he covers in the Central Hockey League reached 291:57 in 2006.
