  • Halloween Komets reminder
    Friday night's Komets game against Kalamazoo will be the first Kids Seat Free night of the season. Those under 12 will get a free ticket with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket.

  • Tremblay to get called up
    Nothing official yet, but the word is Francois Tremblay will be called up to Lake Erie of the American Hockey League. He had a 21-save shutout Sunday at Indianapolis in his professional debut.

Roster jumble working, so far

The Komets are up 1-0 on the Gwinnett Gladiators after one period tonight in Georgia. Josh Brittain has the goal, off the rebound of a Daniel Maggio shot.

Goaltender Kenny Reiter stopped an early penalty shot by Tyler Murovich.

The Komets have benched Stephon Thorne and alternate captain Lincoln Kaleigh Schroch, who have combined for two goals this season.

By the way, newcomer Luca Caputi has 35 games of NHL experience with Pittsburgh and Toronto, scoring three goals and nine points between 2009 and 2011.

I believe he's the first ex-NHL player to join Fort Wayne since P.C. Drouin.
