Tailing the Komets

Congratulations to Marty

The United Hockey League (UHL) announced Monday that Fort Wayne Komets center Martin Gascon has been named Sher-Wood UHL Player of the Week and Rockford IceHogs goaltender Frederic Cloutier has been named Southern Sports Supply UHL Goaltender of the Week for the period ending Sunday, November 19th, 2006.

Gascon completed the week with seven points (3g, 4a) and a plus-6 rating in three games played.  He dished out three assists and was a plus-5 in Friday's 8-1 victory vs. Elmira.  On Saturday, he registerd a “hat trick” (3g) and tallied one assist in the 6-2 win vs. Chicago.  Prior to his back-to-back multi-point games, Gascon had scored four points in nine games this season.  Before scoring his “hat trick” on Saturday, he had not scored a goal since opening night when he netted the game-winning goal in the 8-3 victory vs. Quad City.  The 25-year-old native of Ville St. Pierre, Quebec is playing in his first professional season. 

Other players nominated for the Sher-Wood UHL Player of the Week include: Elmira left wing Yevgeny Lazarev, Flint center Terry Marchant, Kalamazoo left wing Nick Bootland, Muskegon center Todd Robinson, Port Huron center Mark Cadotte, Quad City forward Luke Stauffacher, and Rockford center Preston Mizzi.

Cloutier finished the week with a 2-0-0 record, a 1.00 goals against average (GAA), and a .964 save percentage (SPCT).  He made 25 saves in Wednesday's 5-1 win vs. Fort Wayne.  He stopped 29 shots in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Kalamazoo.  He was 1:54 shy of recording his first shutout of the season before allowing a late goal to the K-Wings.  The 25-year-old native of Saint-Honore, Quebec currently has a 6-4-0 record with a 2.93 GAA that ranks sixth among UHL goaltenders.  Cloutier has won six of his last eight starts.

Other goaltenders nominated for the Southern Sports Supply UHL Goaltender of the Week include: Chicago's Marty Magers, Elmira's Kris Tebbs, Flint's Jason Muzzatti, Fort Wayne's Kevin St. Pierre, Kalamazoo's Tom Askey, Muskegon's Clayton Pool, Port Huron's Dustin Traylen, and Quad City's Jason Tapp.

Hey Blake,
Did we get a new player b/c I saw one walking around in a suit and signing autographs outside our locker-room over the weekend?

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 12:41pm

Congratulations on this and the firt pro hat trick. Great games this weekend.

I think Blake buys lunches for players of the week.

Hanson was in a suit on Saturday walking aroud the rotunda because he was serving a game suspension.

That was Blake walking around signing autographs! ;-) He is going to need to hire a better security staff to keep the masses at bay!
Congrats to Marty as the awards continue to roll in for this team.

I know who Hansen is, it wasn't him. It was another guy with dark curly hair. He was there both games. It was not any of our existing players.

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 4:38pm


That person was at the game last weekend but I never could find out who it was. He was actually standing at the bench during warmups and during pregame against Port Huron. I'm very curious as to who it is, whoever it is, they've got the size going for em.

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 5:24pm

Rookie foward Andrew Dawe, 5-9, 180, who played at Canisius. He's basically in for a tryout after gettng released by Charlotte of the ECHL. Ks think he can play any forward position.

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 5:52pm


Who was the kid at the game last Saturday? The guy I saw behind the bench was defintally taller then 5'9, he looked about Mario's size

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 5:53pm

Also, here's Dawe's stats for anyone interested


Mon, 11/20/2006 - 6:26pm

I asked who was hanging around and this is what I was told. I'll have to ask again later in the week when I've got more time.

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 6:43pm

Hansen was behind the bench during warm ups

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 8:44pm

congrats to marty...and congrats to that whole line way to go boys keep it up

Mon, 11/20/2006 - 8:45pm

also congrats to honkanen just like the guys said who knew he had it in him? LOL

The player i'm talking about was behind the bench last Saturday and Hansen was on the ice then. I can reconize all the guys on this years team and whoever it was, isn't on the team...yet

Tue, 11/21/2006 - 3:20am

Brandon, I think there's some confusion because Hansen was not on the ice Saturday. Remember, he was suspended for that game. I believe that is why people are assuming Hansen was whom you were talking about.

You're saying he was there against Port Huron? From Nov. 4?

Maybe this will help. There's a picture of Andrew Dawe here:


Is this the guy you saw or was it someone else?

Tue, 11/21/2006 - 5:27am

I guess I should have specified more when I said Saturday as I meant the LAST Saturday. (I've been to every Komet game but 2 this year, home and away so they're all starting to run together lol)

Dawe does resemeble the guy, I was across the ice so it was hard to get a good look at his face. I could have sworn he was taller then 5'9 tho.

More importantly, how can I get on their Womens Lacross team?

Tue, 11/21/2006 - 5:31am

One last thing I forgot to add onto that (Where's an edit button when ya need it?) was that it was Saturday the 11th, and that was against Flint and not Port Huron..my mistake

Tue, 11/21/2006 - 6:29am

GREAT JOB MARTIN!!!! That line is red hot. Just wait till Pascal gets back. Bring em on!!
