Ice Chips

  • Greetings from Reading
    READING, Penn. -- Greetings from Reading. I just did some reading on the area (bad pun) and apparently, they can service all of my quilting and outlet-shopping needs here.
  • Here are playoff rosters
    No real surprises on the Komets playoff roster. Click here to see who all the ECHL teams turned in. Of note for Fort Wayne:
  • K's need a power surge
    The Komets power play has shown some signs of life lately, but it still must be better if they want to defeat Reading in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, which begin Thursday.

Chaulk is doing well

Komets captain Colin Chaulk said he feels well today, continues to pass his concussion testing and rode an exercise bike for 25 minutes.

He did not skate, however.

He will try to do so Friday, after which a decision will be made on his availability for Friday night's game against the Bloomington Blaze.

Chaulk suffered concussion-like symptoms when his head hit the ice following a fight with Bloomington's Ryan Palmer early in a 3-2 Komets victory Tuesday. (Read this, where Chaulk defends his decision to drop the gloves.)

Chaulk didn't return to the game but also hasn't failed a concussion test.

Had he, we wouldn't be discussing the possibility of him playing Friday, in accordance with most concussion guidelines I've seen outside of Rapid City, S.D.
