  • Halloween Komets reminder
    Friday night's Komets game against Kalamazoo will be the first Kids Seat Free night of the season. Those under 12 will get a free ticket with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket.
  • Inaugural ECHL Power Rankings
    The inaugural ECHL Power Rankings, as determined by me.
  • Tremblay to get called up
    Nothing official yet, but the word is Francois Tremblay will be called up to Lake Erie of the American Hockey League. He had a 21-save shutout Sunday at Indianapolis in his professional debut.

The Komets have released goaltender Max Strang, so it looks as if Andrey Makarov will be back from his head injury in time for Friday's game at Elmira, N.Y.

What did you think of the fracas in Vancouver vs. Calgary game on Saturday night? Bob Hartley and John Tortorella are not my favorite coaches, but I'll side with Tortorella on this one. If another coach puts the goons out in the starting lineup, you have to respond in kind. That being said, silly for him to go to the Calgary locker room; what good could come of that?
