The update on Hoke

The news on Tim Hoke, the Komets' longtime TV broadcaster, isn't good.

According to his wife, Kristina, he is "not currently showing signs of brain activity and is showing signs of neurological damage," after suffering ventricular fibrillation Sunday.

Ventricular fibrillation is an uncontrolled twitching of muscle fibers in the heart.

Tim Hoke, 66, began calling games in 1989 and retired after last season.
