  • Looks almost official
    Center Thomas Frazee posted on his twitter account he will play for the Komets this season.
  • Next great local hockey star?
    Karch Bachman is on track to a professional career in hockey. Possibly one in the NHL. It'll be fun to follow his development.
  • A possible new Komet
    No official word yet, but I'm hearing that the Komets may be completing a deal with Thomas Frazee, who had 24 goals and 47 points in 60 games last season with Quad City of the CHL.

Interesting video from interesting loss

The Komets gave up three unanswered goals in the 5-2 loss at Kalamazoo, Mich., on Nov. 23, 2012, but there is some interesting action. Check out the Brandon Marino-to-Jean-Michel Rizk goal and a couple of incidences with goalie Kenny Reiter.

Video of K's loss has interesting stuff

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- The Komets lost their fourth game of the last five -- 5-2 at Kalamazoo on Friday night.

And they did so by giving up three unanswered goals in the third period.

If you are having problems viewing the video, click here, as we've been having some site difficulties lately.

My favorite part of this video comes at about the 2:30 mark, when goalie Kenny Reiter shoves Brent Henley out of the way to get at a Wings player.

You can also see the play that had some of us wondering if Reiter would be able to stay in the game.

The Komets need to play smarter and more consistently moving forward; they play host to Toledo tonight at Memorial Coliseum.
