Grading the Komets

Today, I did a report card on how the Komets have performed this season thus far. Click here to read it.

Also, we have a story on the Komets' all-stars, Nick Boucher and Brett Smith. It includes a highlight reel of the season so far. Click here to read and see that.

Additionally, the Komets have teamed up with the Vera Bradley Foundation to fight breast cancer and raise awareness of breast-cancer detection with a "Pink the Rink" weekend, Jan. 20 and 21. They will auction special jerseys (seen above this post) that they are wearing that weekend. They will also be selling special autographed pucks for $10.
