  • A goalie guess; look at lines
    Roman Will would seem to be the most likely fit to wind up in the ECHL as a goalie, but he's spent the last two seasons in the Czech Republic after an impressive junior career in Moncton. If I had to guess, it would be him.
  • K's sign 2 forwards
    The Komets finalized the signing of forward Thomas Frazee, who had 24 goals and 47 points in 60 games last season for Quad City of the CHL, and also announced that they have added forward Brett Beebe to the roster.
  • Looks almost official
    Center Thomas Frazee posted on his twitter account he will play for the Komets this season.

B2 Notworks strikes again

Let us take this moment to recognize the B2 Notworks, I mean, B2 Networks. Biggest game of the season for the Flint Generals -- maybe their final game in the professional ranks -- and broadcaster Joey Battaino is here with nothing to do because, as is way too common, the feed isn't working.

Here's hoping, if the IHL returns next season, it does so without this ramshackle internet TV network.

As for the game, it's been a good one. Clearly, the Komets are not mailing it in. Smart play, since they would be best served by keeping their nemeses, the Generals, out of the postseason.

Seems that Flint coach Jason Muzzatti threw everyone a curve ball by starting Rob Nolan in net, after he told The Flint Journal he was going with Sergei Zvyagin.

Generals have outshot the Komets 13-12 through one period.

  • Congratulations to the Chase Paintball team that won the men's league title out at Canlan Ice Sports earlier today with a 7-6 victory over the Swarm. Joel Bunnell had the game-winning goal in the back-and-forth game and Sean Asiala was in net for the victory.
