Fort Wayne has won two of the three meetings between the teams, though Shawn Szydlowski led the Komets with one goal and five points and he's currently with Cleveland of the American Hockey League. Gabriel Desjardins and Jamie Schaafsma have three points each against the Cyclones. Cincinnati's Nick Huard has one goal and three points against Fort Wayne.
