KOMET Komments 1954-55
Big Joe Kastelic is now in his second season with the Komets. Joe is the property of the Buffalo Bisons and is in Fort Wayne on option.
Kastelic is considered one of the better young players in the I.H.L. loop and in his second season, he should be a tower of strength for Pat Wilson's squad. Coming to the Komets, Kastelic skated on the right wing but later Wilson moved him into a defense position due to injuries on the squad. Needless to say, Joe came through in great stye.
THE VOICE OF HOCKEY FROM FORT WAYNE
In a short span of two hockey seasons here in Fort Wayne, Ernie Ashley, Sports Director of Radio Station WOWO, has established himself as one of the top-notch announcers in the business today.
With a station power of 50,000 Watts, Westinghouse WOWO has carried the story of the Komet games to vast reaches in the United States and Canada and hockey fans throughout the International Hockey League have tuned in when their favorite teams were playing the Komets at Memorial Coliseum to follow their team on their road games.
"Pat" Wilson, Coach of the Komets is now serving his first full season in that capacity. Pat came into the Komet organization at the end of January last season and immediately added a spark to the team. Taking over one of the defense positions and making a few changes with his injury riddled squad, Wilson sparked the team to a nine game winning streak in the home stretch and ended up with a fifth place tie in the International League.
Eddie Olson Playing Coach
If the pre-season training period and the advance preparations necessary to produce a winner are any criterion, Fort Wayne fans can confidently place all of their yearnings and hopes on Eddie Olson, the new Komet Playing Coach.
Olson has taken over the leadership of the Komets and this marks his initial season. A veteran of ten years of American Hockey League warfare, Eddie, has written his mark in the records of Hockey during the past decade and, now, in his third year of coaching, will continue to set a successful pace and further enhance his growing reputation of being one of the finest in the business.
