Fleming highlights

Here's a look at some Scott Fleming highlights with the Komets from the 2013-14 season with the Komets.

Updating the K's

The Komets (25-16-11) are on a 10-3-3 surge that has put them two points back of Kalamazoo (29-17-5) for the division lead and nine behind South Carolina (33-15-4) for the conference lead.

The top eight teams in the conference will make the playoffs. The Komets have 20 games left beginning Wednesday at Memorial Coliseum against Kalamazoo.

Wednesday and Friday, when they play host to Greenville, the Komets will wear pink jerseys to promote awareness for the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

The game-worn jerseys will be silently auctioned through the second intermission of Friday's game. And player wives and significant others will sell special autographed pucks for $15 to benefit the cause.

"When the Komets 'pink the rink,' we're reminded that this disease touches all of us – and that we can all take part in ending it," said Catherine Hill, executive director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.

The Komets and the Vera Bradley Foundation raised more than $30,000 in the first two years of their partnership.
