Notes from the Ks

November 13, 2006

Komet leaders…..Mario
Larocque (D) 17 points…..J.C. Ruid (LW) 8 goals…..Bruce Richardson (C) 13
assists…..Richardson, Larocque +6…..Kevin Hansen (D) 52 pim. 

Larocque is the only UHL
defenseman leading his team in points after 5 weeks of play with 17 (7g, 10a).
Larocque leads UHL defensemen with 4 power play goals. Daniel Goneau (LW) leads
the UHL with 6 power play assists.

Special K’s
…..the
Komets lead the UHL with 24 power play goals in 88 chances after 10 games for a
league-best 27.3% rating. The Komet’s penalty kill ranks second with an 88.8%
efficiency rating allowing only 9 power play goals against in 80 times short
handed.


Streaking
Komets
……Mario Larocque (D) has a 4-game point streak and a current
UHL high goal scoring streak (6g, 3a)…..Guy Dupuis (D) has a 4-game point and
assist streak (6a)…..Bruce Richardson (C) is riding a 4-game point and assist
streak (1g, 5a)…..Komets have a 5-game home win streak, unbeaten at home in 5
games to date.


500 club
…..Komet center
and assistant coach Bruce Richardson appeared in his 500th pro game Saturday
night 11/12/06 vs Flint.


Stingy starts and
stuff
…..only 4 of the 23 goals scored against the Komets after 10
games have been allowed in the first period…..Komets are off to their best
start (8-2-0) since joining the UHL in 1999 when they were also 8-2-0 after the
first 10 (last year after 10 the Komets were 3-5-2)…..before this year, the
best home opening win string the Komets put together was winning the first 2
home games in 2002 and 2004 (the Komets have currently won the first 5 home
games of the season)…..the Komets have 45 goals after the first 10, 3 goals
shy of the record 48 after the first 10 games in 1999….on the flip side, the
Komets have allowed a team low 23 goals after 10 games (second lowest was 28 in
2001)…..the Komets power play is the best it’s ever been after the first 10
Komet UHL games at 27.3%…..
