COMETS HARVEST: The Final Friday

For most people, Friday's just the day before the weekend. But after this Friday, the neighborhood'll never be the same. Ice Cube's character, from F. Gary Gray's cult classic, Friday, summarized it best. After this weekend, the neighbourhood will never be the same. The Vancouver hockey landscape will never be the same. For the first … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Final Friday

COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

https://twitter.com/UticaComets/status/1392541202281648129?s=20 I have seen things you wouldn't believe. Five attackers setting up to fire below the circles. I've watched a journeyman AHL tweener turn into a Sedin twin at the twilight of his Canucks career. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time ...to move. Tonight is the last home … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

COMETS HARVEST: The Gang Opens the Floodgates

Following their gruelling shutout victory over the Binghamton Devils, the Utica Comets look for their second straight win tonight against the Rochester Americans! The 'Merks and the 'Mets...wait, that doesn't sound right. The 'Merks and the Comets have split wins through six games this season, with Utica barely edging the 'Merks by a single point, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Gang Opens the Floodgates

COMETS HARVEST: The AHL is a Flat Circle

The Rath of Bone https://twitter.com/CodySevertson/status/1367187592274317313?s=20 It was quite the weekend debut for Rack Jathbone! Four points in two games, with three of the four coming at 5v5. I mean, what more can I say. Besides his actual offensive production, the guy has NHL speed and skating, vision, and defensive play. There were times in Friday's … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The AHL is a Flat Circle

COMETS HARVEST: Utica Space Minerals vs. the Rochester Citizens of the USA

Damn, Utica! Back at it again with dem back-to-backs! I glowed about this young Comets teams' 5v5 play in my latest prospect update; Just a few days later, the Comets saw departures of several key figures to the St. Louis Blues. The Blues are facing a brutal run of injury luck as of late. Carl Gunnarsson … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Utica Space Minerals vs. the Rochester Citizens of the USA

COMETS HARVEST: Utica Space Minerals vs. The Rochester United States Citizens

Pre-Gameage: Well, folks, it's a quick turnaround for the Comets! This means my favourite thing ever! Half-hearted pre-ambles! After a dominant effort against the Crunch, I expect a bit of a sleepy effort from the Comets tonight. Rochester is coming in fresh, and the last time this happened, they out-controlled their opponent but still wound … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Utica Space Minerals vs. The Rochester United States Citizens

COMETS HARVEST 3.1: The Utica Blues v. the Rochester Amerks

Bring It All Back Now 331 days ago, the Comets concluded their 2019-20 campaign with one of their worst performances. After scoring the game's opening goal, a powerplay tally from Justin Bailey, the Comets gave up three straight, all in a very "2021 Canucks"-like manner. First, poor defensive coverage from Mitch Eliot and John Stevens … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST 3.1: The Utica Blues v. the Rochester Amerks

2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

This time last year, the Vancouver Canucks made a blockbuster trade, 1-for-1, Erik Gudbranson for Tanner Pearson. This trade-deadline, the Canucks dealt Zane McIntyre for Louis Domingue, while calling up Jake Kielly from the Kalamazoo Wings. McIntyre had a great start to the season as a backup, winning 6 of his first ten starts. Unfortunately, … Continue reading 2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The stakes have never been higher... Last night, the Rochester Americans defeated the Syracuse Crunch via the shootout to give themselves a one-point advantage over the Comets for the second-place standing in the North Division.
