The Fort Wayne Freeze (police department team) will take on the Fort Wayne Fire (fire department team) at 4 p.m. Saturday at McMillen Park Ice Arena in a benefit game. The Fort Wayne Blacksnakes will also play both teams in two games after that.
The game is to benefit Alex Wilkins, age 1, who is diagnosed with Lissencephaly, a rare brain disorder. The family was originally from Fort Wayne and moved to New Jersey on a job transfer, but they are trying to move back to have family and friends help them in troubled times.
Admission is free to the game, but donations will be accepted.
Among the former Komets who play for the fire department team are Jim Logan, Kelly Hurd, Kevin Bertram and Parris Duffus.
