FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Long before Nick Boucher stood in the crease for the Fort Wayne Komets, one of the best goalies in International Hockey League history also played in Fort Wayne.

Chuck Adamson came to the Komets in 1962, netminding for two Turner Cup Championship teams. Additionally, Adamson broke a laundry list of franchise records in his five seasons in Fort Wayne, including consecutive appearances (176), regular season appearances and single-season saves (2,268 in 1962-63) and single-game saves (72). Adamson, 73, was enshrined in the Komets Hall of Fame in 1987.

Adamson joins Tommy Schoegler to relive some of the K's greatest moments of the 1960s on Sound Off With The Komets.
