The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

Excuse me while I wax poetic here. In November of 2018, I had a scheduling change at work that would completely alter the next few years of my life. I was home by 3:30 PM every single day and needed something to fill the void before my wife got home from work. Enter the Utica … Continue reading The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

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 Last Dance at the Galaxy Cup [For the Canucks]

One night and one more time Thanks for the memories Even though they weren't so great "He tastes like you only sweeter." The great poets Fall out Boy summarized the Utica Comets history better than a thousand monkeys working on a thousand typewriters writing the great Canadian analogy ever could. The last line, in particular, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The Last Dance at the Galaxy Cup [For the Canucks]

COMETS HARVEST: Moving and Snoozing Edition

https://twitter.com/Canucks/status/1389739123158642693 Let's talk about Utica for a bit, shall we? As an avid Farmies/CometsHarvest reader, I'm sure you've noticed my shoutouts to the locals, whether that be in clips, tweets, screenshots, or in some cases even radio hits with the local ESPN KROCK team. The Utica Comets faithful have taken care of Vancouver's prospects, and … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Moving and Snoozing Edition

COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING

Arise, arise, Riders of Utica! Sticks shall be shaken, shinguards shall be splintered, a stick-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Skate now, skate now, skate! Skate for ruin and the season's ending! Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas! DiPietro's battle cry was heard echoing through the hallways of the Adirondack Bank Center as he … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING

COMETS HARVEST: Jonah Goaldjovich Does the Thing! Twice!

The Comets look to rebound from a devastating 7-1 loss to the Syracuse Crunch when they face off against the *checks notes* Syracuse Crunch. Yeah, the schedule gets pretty bland and repetitive from here on out. Six of the next eleven games come against either Syracuse or Rochester, so variety will be out the window. … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Jonah Goaldjovich Does the Thing! Twice!

COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!

The Comets are two days removed from a tough return-to-action this past weekend—a weekend in which they picked up losses to both the Rochester Americans and the Syracuse Crunch. On Friday, against the Amerks, the Comets dominated play for most of the first two periods. Unfortunately, evaporating energy levels led to some poor defensive coverage, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!

COMETS HARVEST: First Blood Part 2

A quick turnaround for the Utica Comets as they return to action for the first time in a month with a back-to-back. I'm not sure what the impetus was to jamming the Comets schedule with games? Including last night's game against Rochester, the Comets are in the midst of a four-in-six stretch; they play eleven … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: First Blood Part 2

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
