  • A goalie guess; look at lines
    Roman Will would seem to be the most likely fit to wind up in the ECHL as a goalie, but he's spent the last two seasons in the Czech Republic after an impressive junior career in Moncton. If I had to guess, it would be him.
  • K's sign 2 forwards
    The Komets finalized the signing of forward Thomas Frazee, who had 24 goals and 47 points in 60 games last season for Quad City of the CHL, and also announced that they have added forward Brett Beebe to the roster.
  • Looks almost official
    Center Thomas Frazee posted on his twitter account he will play for the Komets this season.

I can tell you I've heard -- and I've reported before -- that a new ECHL team in Indianapolis could be owned by the same people who own another team in the league.
