Tailing the Komets

Back-up goaltender

Is Larkin Saalfrank who is the goaltender on the IPFW club team which just completed its season. He's 20 and a 2010 graduate of Northrop. He played for Komets assistant coach Gary Graham when he was coaching a junior team in Indianapolis.

``He has practiced with us all year and he’s done well in our practices,'' Komets coach Al Sims said. ``We needed somebody quick because we can’t drive anybody in or fly anybody in in time. Tyler (Sims) is working now. He’s the logical choice, and he’s been playing so if we need anybody to play he can play.''

Saalfrank is making the trip with the Komets to Bloomington and then on to Tulsa after tonight's game.

``I skated with some of the players throughout the summer,'' Saalfrank said. ``I know a lot of the players who have been here a while, It’s a pretty good experience I think. I’m just glad to be out here. I’m not really sure what to think right now. It’s like a dream come true.''
