Ice Chips

  • Clarke is K's Mr. Steady
    The Komets rely on their veterans to temper the enthusiasm of the highs and get through the frustration of the lows. And no one in the locker room is more even keel than Aaron Clarke, a 31-year-old forward.
  • Royals bolstered
    The Reading Royals' lineup was bolstered today, as Dustin Gazley was sent down by Hershey of the American Hockey League. He had eight goals and 15 points in 42 games with Hershey.
  • A Brittain story
    Josh Brittain is looking forward to being back at, as he called it, “The Jungle” on Thursday for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

Cool stuff for Ice Chips for Aurora

This item is one of the many cool things that got added to my Ice Chips for Aurora auction.

It is a collection of hockey cards, framed, from the 2003 championship team.

Every card is signed, even Joe Franke, who played in his famous one game for the Komets, except for Muhammad Ali.

There is also one of these from 2001.

Very cool, and it was left for me by a man and his kids, who wanted to donate to this tremendous cause.

Today, we also got items from (wait for it) Larry Sterling.

We have more than 45 items up for auction now.
