  • 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.

Video highlights Day 1

Here's video of the Komets' first scrimmage from Memorial Coliseum, which included a 3-0 victory by the White team, which got goals from Jeremy Gates, Kyle Bochek and John Dunbar. (I didn't get the Dunbar goal, sorry.) Some very good goaltending in here, too, from John Muse, Cody Reichard, Max Strang and Larkin Saalfraank.
