1963: Komets 4, Minneapolis 1: The Komets’ first championship came thanks to some of the franchise’s all-time greats – forwards Len Thornson and Mr. Komet Eddie Long, plus goaltender Chuck Adamson.
1965: Komets 4, Des Moines 2: A 7-5 victory at Memorial Coliseum clinched the Komets’ second Cup. Adamson’s status as maybe the franchise’s best goalie was cemented. John Goodwin had 18 points in 10 playoff games.
1973: Komets 4, Port Huron 0: Robbie Irons and Don Atchison were a potent goaltending combination that season, although Atchison got the playoff duties. The Komets allowed only eight goals in the finals. Bob Fitchner and Jim Pearson each tallied 14 points in the playoffs.
1993: Komets 4, San Diego 0: The Vagabond Komets, a collection of players seemingly no one else wanted, used the savvy of Colin Chin, the scoring of Igor Chibirev and Jean-Marc Richard, and the goaltending of Pokey Reddick to win it all. They were 12-0 in the playoffs.
2003: Komets 4, Quad City 1: The Komets’ only championship in the United Hockey League was paced by savvy forwards Colin Chaulk, Bobby Stewart and Dustin Virag, stingy defense and the hot goaltending of Tom Lawson.
2008: Komets 4, Port Huron 3: It took a comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the finals for the Komets to pull this one off. The 3-2 triple-overtime Game 7 victory, finalized with Justin Hodgman’s goal, is arguably the greatest game in team history.
2009: Komets 4, Muskegon 1: The first back-to-back Cup wins in franchise history were paced by the terrific play of David Hukalo, at both ends of the ice, and he got Playoff MVP honors because of it.
2010: Komets 4, Flint 1: After skirting by Port Huron in a seven-game semifinal, the Komets rode the goal-scoring of MVP Matt Syroczynski – 11 in 12 games – to a victory over the Generals and a three-peat, something only one other team in IHL history has accomplished. Coach Al Sims won his fourth Cup with Fort Wayne.
