AHL could be coming to town

For an exhibition game, you sillies

There is a possibility the American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters and Grand Rapids Griffins will play an exhibition game at Memorial Coliseum on Oct. 4.

This would be because of the Komets' new affiliation with the Colorado Avalanche because their AHL affiliate is Lake Erie. Grand Rapids is the AHL club for the Detroit Red Wings.

Even as an exhibition game, it would be kind of cool to see that caliber of hockey at the Coliseum. And it would be the first look at some possible Komets -- players who don't make the Monsters roster.
