Tailing the Komets: According to team officials…

There are approximately 1,500 tickets still available for tonight's game. Now, keep in mind, New Year's Eve is always one of the heaviest walk-up crowds of the season, so you might want to consider still ordering your tickets ahead of time at the Memorial Coliseum box office, 483-1111. Online ...

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: Another player is gone

A day after losing Marc-Olivier Roy to an American Hockey League call-up to Utica, the Fort Wayne Komets lost another player this morning as Artur Tyanulin has been called up to Tucson. Ironically, both players just returned from AHL call-ups before Christmas. Roy played in one game for the ...

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 ...

Playing short-handed, this one time…

The Komets are starting tonight's game in Cincinnati with 14 skaters, two under the maximum. Usually, when teams play short-handed they play pretty well. Maybe the other teams take things for granted or maybe everyone who is left bands together and plays above and beyond, but usually they ...

Komets fans returning jersey collection to the players

Tailing the Komets: Going to Friday’s game? Get there early
