Demonz, Komets sign affilitation
Dayton, Ohio—The Dayton Demonz, proud member of the Federal Hockey League (FHL), are pleased to announce a working affiliation agreement with the 2012 Central Hockey League champions and now current East Coast Hockey League member, Fort Wayne Komets. The Komets are also the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey Leagues Anaheim Ducks.
This partnership will benefit both the Demonz and Komets with the development of players ready to play at the “AA” level.
The Komets are entering their 61st season in existence and have won four championships the past five seasons in both the Central and International Hockey Leagues. This will be the Demonz first season in the Federal Hockey League.
“I am very pleased to have our club working with such a first class organization such as the Fort Wayne Komets. They are one of, if not, the top organization in all of minor pro hockey,” Demonz Head Coach Marc LeFebvre stated, “Head Coach Al Sims and owners, David and Michael Franke, run a great program there and it is no wonder they compete for a championship every season.”
Komets General Manager and Co-Owner David Franke added, “The hockey tradition continues this season with the Dayton Demonz. This agreement will be beneficial to both teams. Fort Wayne will send players to Dayton out of the Komets training camp. If the Komets get short-handed, we will ask the Demonz for help. The Komets will never take more than one player at a time. We don’t want to hurt Dayton’s roster. They need to be competitive and Fort Wayne understands that.”
