I also talked with Mitzi Toepfer, Fort Wayne Youth Hockey League guru for decades about the debate on how much the Komets support/donate to the league.
``If there was something the league needed for some help of some kind, they have always helped, be it financial or whatever,'' she said. ``Normally, finances aren't even a question. They have gone out of their way since they have been owners. They have always been very accommodating and supportive of Fort Wayne Youth Hockey.''
As for having more exhibitions on weeknights this year, Toepfer said, ``That's for starters, the Komets had fewer Saturday night games this year and they had to work in some of these Wednesday night games and stuff."
Last night was the Komets' first Satuday home since Jan. 9. They've only had five so far this season.
As for paying $175 for youth hockey league jerseys, Toepfer said, ``I'm not sure where he's buying jerseys, but we've never paid $175 for jerseys.''
Toepfer normally buys all the jerseys for FWYH.
