Fort Wayne Komets


Recommended Posts

The Komets are the 2nd oldest minor league hockey team in existence, I believe.

I grew up with them in the late sixties, early seventies. Used to go to over 30 games a year as a kid. 

Back then, they played in the International Hockey League. The IHL was below only the AHL in quality of league at that time. With only a handful of NHL teams, the Komets and all of the IHL had players who in today's game, would be playing in the NHL. 

I played with and against Colin Chin, one of the all-time Komet greats. He was a couple years younger than the rest of the age based youth league, but skated circles around us all.
