Comet of the Week
Alex Grenier takes the nod as the Comet of the Week for the second consecutive time. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder picked up three helpers in the loss to Rochester on Saturday and also finished with a team-high plus-2 rating. Through three games this season, the Laval, Quebec native has posted five points (1-4-5) and seven penalty-minutes. Although the Comets are minus-5 in the goal-differential department, Grenier is sitting pretty with a plus-5 rating and has been on the ice for six of the seven goals the Comets have scored this season.
The Comets will finally play in front of their home crowd on Wednesday night's home opener against the Albany Devils (3-1-0-1) in a rematch from October 12th that saw the Devils prevail with a 3-2 victory.
On Friday, the Comets host the Syracuse Crunch (2-2-1-0) at the Utica Memorial Auditorium and just twenty-four hours later the Comets will welcome their North Division rivals, the Hamilton Bulldogs (1-1-0-2).
