  • CHL's Arizona Sundogs suspend operations
    As the Denver Cutthroats did Wednesday, the CHL's Arizona Sundogs have also suspended operations and will not play this season with the hope, allegedly, being that they return in 2015-16. All their players are free agents.
  • Some CHL news
    The CHL's Denver Cutthroats have gone dormant for the upcoming season and are looking to secure investors for the 2015-16 season.
  • K's add scoring, toughness
    The Komets were in need of a defenseman who can score and hit and they got one today – and he should be familiar to fans of the team – with the signing of Matt Krug.

Roster jumble working, so far

The Komets are up 1-0 on the Gwinnett Gladiators after one period tonight in Georgia. Josh Brittain has the goal, off the rebound of a Daniel Maggio shot.

Goaltender Kenny Reiter stopped an early penalty shot by Tyler Murovich.

The Komets have benched Stephon Thorne and alternate captain Lincoln Kaleigh Schroch, who have combined for two goals this season.

By the way, newcomer Luca Caputi has 35 games of NHL experience with Pittsburgh and Toronto, scoring three goals and nine points between 2009 and 2011.

I believe he's the first ex-NHL player to join Fort Wayne since P.C. Drouin.
