FORT WAYNE – If you sit in the lower bowl at Memorial Coliseum, chances are you hear Komets players yelling things to one another, at least if they are doing what they should be.
Good communication is a key to success for any hockey team.
Honestly, and I really believe this, communication is the most important part of the game, forward Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock said. It may not seem from the stands like talking out there is that (pivotal), but if a guy is talking and it means you dont have to look up before you make a decision, that makes it so much easier to be successful out there.
One of the best feelings you have as a hockey player is when something works because you all communicated well.
Considering the Komets record is a Central Hockey League-worst 5-13-1, and theyve lost five in a row heading into tonights game against the Quad City Mallards in Moline, Ill., perhaps the communication could stand to improve.
All I hear little kids say out on the ice is pass, pass, pass, Shrock said. But there are a lot of terms, and the teams that communicate the best are the ones that win.
