The best of Boucher

Former Komets goaltender Nick Boucher will have his number (33) retired Oct. 26, 2013, along with the number (1) of Chuck Adamson. Here is a look at some highlights, and one big lowlight, from his time with the Komets.

Fantastic Boucher moments

He will have his number retired by K's, as will Adamson, on Saturday

In honor of the Komets retiring No. 33 in honor of Nick Boucher on Saturday night, I put together this highlight reel of Boucher plays. (Well, there is one memorable lowlight.)

I wish I had some video clips of Chuck Adamson, who will have his No. 1 retired, too. But I wasn't alive then.

Make sure you check out The Journal Gazette on Saturday; we will have a cool story on these two famed goaltenders.
