Tailing the Komets

Komets sign three to tryouts

From a Komets press release:

The Komets announced Tuesday that three players have been added to the preseason roster after signing tryout agreements.  Defenseman Paul Arnott, forward Nicola Levesque, and goaltender Eric Levine.

Arnott, 27, made his ECHL debut appearing in 14 games with Elmira during 2012-13.  Last season the Holly, Michigan native split the year between Bloomington (SPHL) and Greenville (ECHL).

Levesque, 21, will be entering the Komet camp looking for his pro debut.  The Trois-Rivieres, Quebec native completed four seasons of juniors last year skating 36 games with La Tugue of the QJAHL posting juniors career highs of 15 goals and 41 points.  During 2011-12 Levesque captured the Quebec Junior AAA Championship while a member of the Princeville Titans.

Levine, 26, becomes the second goaltender to be placed on the Fort Wayne preseason roster.  The Wheeling, Illinois native made his juniors debut in 2007-08 winning the CJHL Championship with Pembroke and made it back-to-back championships the following season while being named to the CJHL first All-Star Team.  Levine finished four seasons of a collegiate career with Robert Morris University in 2012-13.  Last season the netminder made his pro debut splitting the season between Peoria (SPHL) and Allen (CHL).
