The Colorado Avalanche have renewed their affiliation agreement with the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL, the team announced on Tuesday afternoon. The Komets will also be the ECHL affiliate of the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL.
“The Komet organization is honored and very excited about our new two-year affiliation with the Colorado Avalanche,” Fort Wayne general manager David Franke said. “We had a very good agreement with them last year and they were at the top of our list this summer to continue the relationship. “Craig Billington, assistant general manager, and David Oliver, player development director, are great to work with and they understand the value of a good affiliation to both the Avalanche and their AHL affiliate, San Antonio, and the Komets.”
Last season, Fort Wayne reached 100 points for the first time since the 1992-93 season.
The Rampage will open the 2015-16 season in October.
