Kawartha Komets...Game Night Sponsors at Peterborough Petes Game

The Kawartha Komets Special Needs Hockey Program was the Game Night Sponsor at the Peterborough Petes game vs. the Ottawa 67's on Thursday, December 29th at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.

The Petes had entered the Christmas break with 8 straight wins and were hoping to extend the streak upon their return.  Just over 3,000 fans were not disappointed as the Petes came from behind to defeat the 67's 7-5.

The Komets were in charge of the Chuck-A-Puck Contest and more pucks were sold on the 29th than had been sold at any previous game this season.  The Chuck-A-Puck prizes, provided by the Komets, were:
  • 1st prize - A Peterborough Petes jersey signed by the entire team.  Personally donated by Petes' head trainer, Brian Miller.  
  • 2nd prize - A Lenovo 7" Tablet
