Wings make a joke out of Komets’ winning streak

This game was so bad, every driver in the building volunteered to leave early and warm up the car — and by gosh it didn't matter that the second period had just started. No one in the building seemed to mind going back out into the cold, perhaps even willing to walk home just to get away. ...

Komets notes: Szyd’s hot streak, Toledo turnaround and defensive dominance

BLAKE SEBRING: Komets’ brotherhood has turned things around

After Thanksgiving weekend, the Fort Wayne Komets were 8-6-2 and couldn't seem to pop the clutch on their season. They couldn't put two consistent periods together let along two games. But somehow within one month, they grew from being underachievers into a brotherhood that looks ...

Komets continue spectacular December with road win

Just a month ago, some Fort Wayne Komets fans were asking for major personnel changes after a 5-5-2 start. Tonight, the Komets are going to finish off one of their best months ever. The Komets improved to 11-2 in December with a 5-0 win at Quad City on Saturday night. Fort Wayne hasn't had 11 ...

Tailing the Komets: More roster moves

The Komets have claimed forward Justin MacDonald off waivers from Adirondack. He had no points in five games with the Thunder. He's been basically an SPHL player who has bounced all over the place during his career. His status for tonight's game is unknown, but I'd guess it's unlikely he could ...
