According to the Dayton Gems, there will be a preseason home-and-home series between the Komets and Gems. They will play at Memorial Coliseum on Oct. 7 and at Hara Arena in Dayton on Oct. 9.
Both games will have 7:30 p.m. starts.
I love how the press release refers to them as "heavily rivaled opponents." Really? Must have missed that last season.
But since Dayton is the only Central Hockey League foe nearby, they're going to have to talk up this so-called rivalry.
It is interesting that Fort Wayne native Brian Gratz's first game behind the Gems' bench will be against the Komets, in Fort Wayne.
