  • 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.

Not yet on Musselwhite

While defenseman Steven Delisle will make his debut for the Komets on Friday against the Arizona Sundogs, it doesn't sound as if forward Neil Musselwhite will do the same.

The Komets are still awaiting his immigration work papers to come through, general manager David Franke said, and while that could happen early Friday, they're not planning on it.

As it stands now, the Komets won't have to release anyone to make room on their roster.

  • Have you seen this?
  • The Komets are asking fans to bring gently used or new kids' coats to the games Friday and Saturday, and they will be distributed to children in need. They need sizes 6 through 14, and they also need new mittens hats and scarves. If you make a donation, you get 10 free chuck-a-pucks, compliments of Scott's and Kroger.
