Sims' update

Sims

Komets coach Al Sims has been pleased with what he's seen in practice, since the Komets lost 5-0 in their season opener Saturday to the Evansville IceMen.

The Komets next play this Saturday, again against the IceMen, who haven't allowed a goal in three games through the preseason and regular season.

"Practice has been going really good," Sims said. "We're still trying to get our systems in place. We've got a lot of new guys coming together, and they have a lot of questions about our systems (we're answering). We've done a lot of conditioning and have been having lengthy practices. We're making sure we're not going to make the same mistakes that we did last Saturday."

As a reminder, the Komets will hold their jersey retirement ceremony for Guy Dupuis prior to the 7:30 p.m. game, so arrive a little early.
