  • Talked to new K's goalie Nagle
    I spoke to Komets goaltender Pat Nagle. Super nice guy. And I don't just say that because we're both from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
  • K's invading AHL camps
    When American Hockey League training camps opened today, there were lots of players under contract to play for the Komets this season who took part.
  • Bachman in Prospects Game

Will Toledo remedy K's?

The Komets are playing the Toledo Walleye tonight, in the annual New Year's Eve game. For the Komets, that should be a good thing.

Fort Wayne is 2-0-1 against the Walleye this season. Brandon Marino has a team-best five points in the season series. Chris Auger also has four points, including two goals.

Toledo's Trevor Parkes has two goals and three points.

Overall, Fort Wayne is 11-11-4 and Toledo is 9-15-3.

Honestly, I know there's a ton of drama with the Komets, but they have plenty of time to make a run. They really do. Would you rather be rooting for the Walleye, which is six games below .500?
