I stopped by the Komets' open house for season-ticket holders at Lutheran Health SportsCenter. It's always great to see how much the team interacts with the fans. I'm sure it happens, but I can honestly say that in 16 season covering the team, I've never witnessed a Fort Wayne player refuse to give an autograph or at least be cordial to the fans.
Anyway, enjoy a few modest photos I took from the event.
Elsewhere, this has officially usurped the Danbury Trashers as the biggest mess in recent minor league history: The Quad City Mallards were supposed to finally have a practice less than four days before their first game, and they have an ownership change. Wow. I can't imagine why Eric Giosa and Brandon Marino got out of Moline, Ill.
Speaking of Marino, he was runner-up for ECHL Player of the Week to Riley Armstrong of Utah. Marino had three goals and five points. Armstrong had three goals and four points. Both played twice.
