Finally, the Fort Wayne Komets released their schedule. Click here to see it. Nothing earth-shattering there. Another 76-game schedule. Yes, they're playing on Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve.
I can't believe a six-team league has an unbalanced schedule against opponents, but what's one more game against Flint anyway?
As I reported over the weekend, the season opens Oct. 17 at Port Huron, Mich.
Komets general manager David Franke said today that the team is still having end-of-season meetings with players and that no contract offers have yet been extended. (Center Colin Chaulk is the only player under contract.) Franke said he doesn't expect either defenseman Guy Dupuis or left wing Konstantin Shafranov to retire, so I'd say chances of both returning are good.
