[UTICA COMETS] 2020-21 Season


Recommended Posts

Nice to see the Utica fans can keep their Comets identity. I had heard the Devils usually force their name on their AHL affiliate. The colour change was expected though. Good luck next year!

I think they would have been fools to change the name. The brand is very well respected in the AHL community and in the city of Utica. Hats off to Robert Esche for insisting the team name be kept as part of the deal. I like the fact that they just changed the color and not the emblem itself.

What does that leave for Abbotsford? Junior Canucks? Fraser Valley Sockeye?

I have no idea of what they might come up with but was disappointed that the Comets name was staying in Utica. Can't blame Robert Esche for keeping the name though as the Comets brand in the AHL has been very sucessful

He is a smart man, wonder if he wants a promotion to join an NHL franchise in some capacity?? Loved the logo and colour scheme puts our Orca Bay to shame!!!

He is not going anywhere; his roots are established in the area as he was born in NY.

I get that as well but think he is very happy where he is. He is his own boss in Utica as he is the president of both the Comets and the Utica City FC of the MASL.

& ol' geezer Mic sings: (strumming sitars)

 

They're on a dark floor, but they want to paint it red

That logo's become lore, but is the spirit dead?

 

I see our prospects fly, far to the western coast

& now our rivals cry, for all their hopes are toast!
