Congrats to Graham

Pensacola of the Southern Professional Hockey League, which is coached by Gary Graham, a native of Fort Wayne and former assistant coach with the Komets, is in the championship series.

They are taking on Huntsville.

Considering it's Graham's first season as a head coach in the professional ranks -- and he had to deal with this -- it seems he's done a good job.

John Dunbar leads the Ice Flyers in playoff scoring. Jeremy Gates is plus-6. And Gerry Festa, the third former Komets player on the team, is the backup goalie.
