2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

It feels genuinely surreal to be writing about hockey again.  The last time I wrote about hockey here, the Comets were returning home off of a three-game road hit, hoping to extend their current win streak to four.  Despite getting an early lead, the Comets defensive structure collapsed. Michael Di Pietro did all he could … Continue reading 2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

In a battle between mediocre North Division teams playing roller-coaster hockey in 2020, the Utica Comets face off with the Toronto Marlies in another inter-divisional matchup. I say roller-coaster because both teams have had brief moments of domination. Toronto's 7-6 comeback win against Belleville or Utica's 6-3 win over Hartford being the primary example of … Continue reading 2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

Merry Christmas Canucks Nation, it’s been a while since we checked in on the Farm with the Comets Harvest! As you all know, I was selected as the fourth fellow for the Botchford Project and that, coupled with my many Holiday obligations, took me away from my usual Comets coverage.

Welcome, Canucks Nation, to the hungover edition of the Comets Harvest. pre-emptive sorry for the sentence fragments.
