What to expect from K's

So what will the Komets look like this season, in terms of their style of play?

"From my conversations with (coach Gary Graham), we want to play a puck possession game, up tempo, (quick) transitions," forward Chris Auger said. "We're going to fade away from the chip-and-chase era.

"It's exciting. It looks like a fast-paced team with the players he brought in up front and we have a lot of size in the back end, and that was lacking last year and even in my my first year here (2011-12) when we won the CHL title."
