A championship goaltending duo could be back for the Komets this season, when the team joins the Central Hockey League.
Komets general manager David Franke confirmed the team is in negotiations with goaltender Kevin Reiter about returning to Fort Wayne.
"It's a possibility," Franke said. "We are talking to him, and that's where we're at right now. It's a strong possibility."
Reiter was the IHL's Goaltender of the Year in 2007-08, when he was 32-10-4 with a 2.34 goals-against average, while splitting time with Nick Boucher.
In the playoffs that season, he was 3-3 with a 2.84 GAA but didn't play the final three games, when Boucher led the Komets back from a 3-1 deficit in the finals against Port Huron.
Reiter, 28, spent the last two seasons playing in England, while the Komets won two more IHL championships, during which Boucher shared time with Sebastien Laplante and Tim Haun.
Boucher has already signed on for this season.
Reiter couldn't be reached for comment.
Reiter played for Basingstoke, Sheffield and Newcastle in England, but suffered myriad injuries along the way.
"I got in touch with him, just to see where he's at with everything. I wasn't sure whether he was going to be to Europe this season," Franke said. "I'll probably know early-to-mid next week at the latest what's going to happen."
