Ice Chips

  • 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.
  • This is sad news
    Former Komets star Joe Kastelic, who once owned the record for most goals scored in the IHL, died Wednesday at 81. He skated for the Komets from 1953 to 1957 and then again in 1960-61.
  • Major signings for Komets
    The Komets bolstered their roster with a potential No. 1 goaltender, a former first-round NHL draft pick, a familiar face and player who should be popular with the fans.

Here's a great question

OK, in the comments section, tell me the former Komets player you most want to see win a championship in the ECHL season.

And tell me why.

Your options are:

-- Stephon Thorne in Toledo

-- Bryant Molle in Reading

-- Tom Mele in Alaska

-- Dustin Molle in Alaska

-- Brent Henley in Florida

Personally, I'm going Mele. I feel like he never got a fair chance in Fort Wayne. Remember all those games last season he barely got on to the ice, and then he was great in the playoffs and they still didn't bring him back. He's been with Alaska all season long -- even when they had NHLers -- and it would be cool for him to win another Cup.
