Ex-Komets player's son taken in NHL Draft

JOURNAL GAZETTE

Drake Batherson, who was born in Fort Wayne, was selected in the forth round of the NHL draft by the Ottawa Senators.

Batherson, a 19-year-old center, didn't grow up in the area, but he was born here because his father, Norm, played for the Komets in 1997-98.

Drake played last season for Cape Breton of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
