The Journal Gazette

Mike Embach of the Komets has received the ECHL's 2016-17 Community Service Award, the team announced today.

Embach made more than 20 community appearances during the season, and coordinated with teammates to make sure they were involved, too, the Komets said in a statement.

He participated in last year's Three Rivers Festival parade, started an annual team visit to Lutheran Children's Hospital around Christmas and volunteered as a youth hockey coach.

Embach is the eighth recipient of the league award, and the first Komet to win it.
