  • K's drop to 4th in rankings
    After getting soundly defeated by the Toledo Walleye twice in the last week, the Komets have dropped in my ECHL Power Rankings. Idaho now tops the list.
  • A good cause
    The Fort Wayne Freeze, the police department team, will take on the Cincinnati Firefighter Hockey Club at Memorial Coliseum at 3 p.m. Saturday.
  • No defense, no win for Komets
      TOLEDO, Ohio – In what has been a largely excellent start to the season, the Toledo Walleye has proved problematic for the guys in orange and black.

Is Dundon done?

I got a tip that the Komets' longtime athletic trainer, Shawn Dundon, will no longer be with the Komets next season.

I tracked down Dundon to see if this was true, and he said he had no comment on the matter.

I've yet to reach general manager David Franke to confirm if a change has been made, and if it was made by the Komets, Dundon or the Lutheran Health Network, which provides the Komets their trainer.

Dundon has been with the Komets since 2000, making sure players were healthy enough to win five championships in four leagues.
