  • This is sad news
    Former Komets star Joe Kastelic, who once owned the record for most goals scored in the IHL, died Wednesday at 81. He skated for the Komets from 1953 to 1957 and then again in 1960-61.
  • Major signings for Komets
    The Komets bolstered their roster with a potential No. 1 goaltender, a former first-round NHL draft pick, a familiar face and player who should be popular with the fans.
  • Former Komet in Elmira
    Steven Shamanski, who had a cup of coffee with the Komets, has signed to play this season with Elmira of the ECHL.

Good news for K's

Thomas Beauregard, who has 15 goals and 21 points in 35 games, will probably be in the lineup Saturday at Kalamazoo, Mich. He would have been back sooner from his upper-body injury, but he was required to serve his 21 days on injured reserve.

Forward Matt Syroczynski is a possibility to play for the first time this season with the Komets this weekend, but I don't know the likelihood.

Colin Chaulk, out with a foot infection, is still a couple of weeks away.

I asked some of the Komets about Ryan Lasch returning to Europe, thereby making it highly unlikely we seem him back in Fort Wayne this season. What I was told was, essentially, they felt Europe was better suited to his style of play.
