Ex-Komets player's son taken in NHL Draft


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.
