A reminder that when the Komets play host to the Indy Fuel at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Coliseum, it will be Star Wars Night. The first 1,000 fans will get glow-in-the-dark bracelets and the team will wear special jerseys that will be auctioned to benefit Camp Whatcha Wanna Do.

The Komets also play at the Coliseum at 5 p.m. Sunday against Tulsa – the only meeting of the season between the teams.

In other news, the ECHL announced that the All-Star Classic, 7 p.m. Jan. 21 from Toledo, Ohio, will air live on NHL Network. It will again be a four-team 3-on-3 tournament, but two of the teams will be made up of Walleye players. There will also be a skills competition.

“This is a truly unique format to highlight our league and players during this ECHL showcase event,” commissioner Ryan Crelin said in a press release. “The excitement of having the host Toledo Walleye competing against the All-Stars with rally scoring, as well as showcasing their talents through skills events, is going to a create a new twist on the fun All-Star games can create for our fans.”
