Fort Wayne Komets' general manager David Franke and head coach Al Sims announced Tuesday changes in the leadership positions within the team's internal structure.
Veteran defenseman Guy Dupuis will relinquish his captain designation and P.C. Drouin will no longer be an alternate captain. Both changes will take effect immediately. "We are trying to change the culture in the Komet locker rooms and we want Guy and P.C. to concentrate on their games and not have to worry about things off of the ice," stated Franke.
"This is not any indication that the two players have done anything wrong," said Sims. "We just want to change things up in the locker room."
