Fort Wayne native Saalfrank makes pro debut

Larkin Saalfrank, a native of Fort Wayne and a former IPFW goaltender, made his professional regular-season debut today with the Federal Hockey League's Danville Dashers.

He allowed three goals in 32 minutes, 58 seconds, after coming in during the second period of a 6-3 loss at Dayton.

The box hasn't been updated to reflect this, so I can't tell you exact save numbers.

He was in training camp this year with the Komets.

I believe he's the first Fort Wayne-bred goaltender to play in the pros since Brian Gratz, unless you count the Komets' Cody Reichard, who grew up in Celina, Ohio, but played his youth hockey here.
