Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An outstanding history An outstanding history of hockey in Fort Wayne, and a wonderful read. Author Blake Sebring nails the history of the third oldest franchise in Minor-League hockey with a series of entertaining five to ten paragraph tales. He hits on life in the old International Hockey League, squaring off with opponents like Muskegon and Toledo. He touches on life after coast-to-coast expansion and the demise of the old league. He captures stories from life in today's United Hockey League. Throughout, he spins stories that perfectly describe what fans love about hockey. Sebring focuses on the names and faces that populate the game, and never forgets to toss in the irrelevant gem (Did you know the Komets are 10-0 in games where the San Diego Chicken made an appearance?) that truly makes this book indispensable for the fan of minor league sports. Reading the names in the Dedication and scanning the Chapter names, I knew I was in for a treat. Paging through the Record Book and the season by season stats, I knew I had a keepsake. This is the way a history should be compiled! Pick up a copy. You won't regret it.
