Ice Chips

  • Looks almost official
    Center Thomas Frazee posted on his twitter account he will play for the Komets this season.
  • Next great local hockey star?
    Karch Bachman is on track to a professional career in hockey. Possibly one in the NHL. It'll be fun to follow his development.
  • A possible new Komet
    No official word yet, but I'm hearing that the Komets may be completing a deal with Thomas Frazee, who had 24 goals and 47 points in 60 games last season with Quad City of the CHL.

Memorable night for good and bad

Video recap of the night

It was a memorable night at Memorial Coliseum for the good (the jersey retirement ceremonies), the exciting (the goaltending was good) and the bad: The Komets coughed up a three-goal lead in the 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Cyclones in an overtime shootout.

Check out the video package I put together of the whole evening. It's at the very top of this post.
