  • 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.
  • Komets affiliate with Avs, Lake Erie
    The Komets have aligned with the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and their American Hockey League team, the Lake Erie Monsters.

Roster changes for Komets

The Komets have waived Colten Hayes and sent Mike Hoban back to Dayton of the Federal Hockey League.

They are expecting at least one player, including a forward, to be sent from Norfolk of the American Hockey League before Wednesday's game at Gwinnett, Ga.

Komets general manager David Franke, meanwhile, is not pleased with the way the Komets have been playing. He has been scouring the free-agent wires for players.

"I don't think anybody should really feel secure," Franke said. "We like to win. And we're not winning now. We're not playing hard fort three periods or playing Komet hockey for three periods."

Meanwhile, I don't personally think the venue has had much to do with the Komets' recent woes, but sometimes getting away from Fort Wayne does them some good.
