FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The ECHL Eastern Conference leading Komets are about to begin the second half of their season this coming weekend. The team is also close to getting captain Kaleigh Schrock back in the line-up.
Schrock has been out for nearly two months due to three broken bones in his face during a fight with a player on the Indianapolis Fuel. The broken bones also affected Schrock’s vision, who has been forced to wear an eye patch while recovering.
The Fort Wayne native is practicing and do it without the eye patch for the first time. Schrock told NewsChannel 15 he has been able to practice, and has joined Indiana Tech for some practices during the All-Star break.
Schrock said his vision is clear except for things that are far away.
There is still no date set for when Schrock will return to game action.
The Komets begin the second half of the year with a two-game series at Wheeling. The Komets and Nailers drop the puck Friday night at 7:35.
