Leo Thomas is considering whether to become Gary Graham's captain and assistant coach with Pensacola of the SPHL. He's played the last four years with the Komets, earning three championship rings, scoring 86 goals and 163 points in 236 games. The sides are getting close, but the final paperwork has not been signed yet. An announcement could come later this week.
Great move by both sides if it comes true. This is the perfect set up for Gary and for Leo.
The highlight of Thomas's Fort Wayne career? He was always very good in the playoffs in whatever role Al Sims gave him, but I'd have to say his best performance came in 2008-09 when the Komets signed him from Bloomington and he immediately came in and provided critical offense when the Komets were struggling to score after Mathieu Curadeau got hurt. He was a lifesaver that season.
