  • Some updates for you
    I don't have anything new to report on the alleged merger between the ECHL and CHL -- wouldn't it actually be an absorption of the CHL?
  • 18 Komets road games on TV this season
    Eighteen Komets road games this season will be broadcast live on MyTV Fort Wayne. Play-by-play duties will be handled by 21 Alive’s Tommy Schoegler and Kent Hormann.
  • Komets sign three players
    The Komets added goaltender Eric Levine, forward Nicola Levesque and defenseman Paul Arnott to their roster Tuesday, giving them 24 players so far for the upcoming season.

Living up to the hype?

I apologize that I've been a little out of touch, but I've been knee-deep in coverage of the Colts this week.

However, I wanted to bring you this week's link to Gary Snyder's "Sports Night." It can be accessed to your right. Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock is on during the first half of the show, and I appear at about the 27-minute mark.

  • The Komets, of course, play at Muskegon, Mich., on Friday night. But I'm not entirely sure I wouldn't have a touch more interest in the Flint vs. Bloomington game, after they brawled in their last tilt. Click here to read a reporter's coverage in The Flint Journal. The Generals are expected to sign a bunch of tough guys, so the rematch could live up to the hype.
  • I neglected to post this earlier in the week: Steve Penhollow talks with The Rock about playing a hockey player going up against the fictional Fort Wayne Roughnecks.
