FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Komets fans had a chance to get up and personal with the players Tuesday night with Meet The Team Night.
Komets signed autographs, took photos and interacted with fans in the season ticket-holder only event at Lutheran Health Sports Center.
"The support here is unbelievable," winger John Dunbar says. "For them, I'm sure its fun to get some faces with some names."
It was an opportunity for the new guys to meet the fan base as much as it was for the fans to meet the K's."

"We, as players, embrace the situation," winger Mike Vaskivuo adds. "I think it's a big reason why people want to play here, too."
The Komets hit the road this weekend for two games in Las Vegas. Friday's and Saturday's games are at 10 p.m. EDT, and can be seen on MyTV Fort Wayne.
