The Florida Everblades, the team with the best name and logo in the league, wrapped up the ECHL's Kelly Cup on Wednesday night. Click here to read more.
Here's hoping the Komets open next season at beautiful Germain Arena. I've been there and would love to see the CHL-champion Komets, newest members of the ECHL, take on the Everblades.
Did you notice who scored for the Everblades in the Cup clincher? Former Komets defenseman Mike Ratchuk.
- In other news, I have this to pass on from Komets captain Colin Chaulk: He has entered into a partnership with the Lutheran Health SportsCenter and will be running a series of summer camps there. There will be skating programs, puck skills and so on. There are camp sessions June 25-29, July 9-13, July 23-27, July 30-Aug. 3. For information, call 260-387-6614, email email@example.com or visit www.hockeyhouse.ca. I believe these are all for youth ages. There are also spots left for a special shooting clinic. Call the aforementioned number, and ask for Alena Lunin, for information.
- Komets assistant coach Gary Graham wanted me to pass along that there will be an event Sunday, 7 to 11 p.m., at Baer Field Speedway. There will be fireworks, a musical performance by Tone Junkies, Bounce Mania for the kids, and some Komets players will be there with Icy D. Eagle and the Presidents' Cup.
