The Komets have signed Shaquille Merasty, who had four goals and seven points in 10 games with Birmingham and Greenville of the lower-level Southern Professional Hockey League. It's an interesting signing as he plays with some grit. Last season, he had 10 goals, 24 points and 153 penalty minutes in 51 games with the Rapid City Rush. That included a fight with A.J Jenks, who's now his teammate.
Reminders about Thursday: It will be the 59th Thanksgiving Game at the Coliseum and the Komets will look to improve their 37-17-4 Turkey Day record. As it’s the Bob Chase Memorial Game, the Komets will wear special jerseys honoring their late broadcaster and they’ll be raffled to benefit WOWO’s Penny Pitch for Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.
Reminder about Saturday: It will be my personal favorite night, Star Wars Night. The Komets will give lightsabers to the first 2,000 kids; characters will be on hand; and special jerseys will be worn and auctioed to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Wayne.
