Ice Chips

  • K's looking to improve
    The weekend was just two games against the same team.
  • The resurrection of Schrocky
    Check out today's story on the Komets, who are off to a 2-0-0 start this season. We explore how and why the captain, Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock, has looked so good, so far this season.
  • Recap, video from K's victory
      Komets captain Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock has scored twice, after netting only five goals all of last season.

Saalfrank in net for K's

For reasons unknown at this point, Komets goaltender Ben Meisner sprawled to the ice while play was stopped midway through the second period.

He left the ice with help and now Larkin Saalfrank, who was the emergency goalie, is in net for the Komets.

The Komets trail Orlando 4-3. late in the second and Saalfrank has stopped 2 of 3 shots.

He is a former IPFW goalie who played half a game this season with Danville of the Federal Hockey League. He played in a 2012 exhibition game for the Komets and was in their training camp last fall.

I will try to get an update on Meisner when I can.
