Cup pick, K’s affiliation update
It’s still very early in the Komets’ offseason. But if you’re wondering about the status of an NHL affiliate for next season, Komets general manager David Franke said: “That’s going on right now. We’ve been working on that for the last couple weeks. Everybody knows that in our position, we’re going to have a new coach on board, and that for us right now is the biggest thing we’ve had to do since the season ended.”
The Komets’ expiring affiliation with the Vegas Golden Knights is expected to be renewed but a wrinkle may be the Los Angeles Kings’ search for an ECHL partner.
