Avs Renew Affiliation with Fort Wayne

With the Avs AHL affiliate now in the secure hands of San Antonio, attention slowly turned to a secondary affiliation with an ECHL or possibly even a CHL franchise. On Tuesday, Colorado and Fort Wayne announced they had come to a two-year agreement in order to extend their relationship for two more years. 

Questions were raised as to whether the clubs would part ways after just one season of partnership, but today's announcement ended any doubts.

The Komets will likely receive five or six players from San Antonio, including a goaltender. Maybe just as important, the Komets will receive six spots in the AHL training training camp which Fort Wayne coach Gary Graham will participate in.
