2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

It feels genuinely surreal to be writing about hockey again.  The last time I wrote about hockey here, the Comets were returning home off of a three-game road hit, hoping to extend their current win streak to four.  Despite getting an early lead, the Comets defensive structure collapsed. Michael Di Pietro did all he could … Continue reading 2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

3/7/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Charlotte Checkers

Good afternoon Canucks Nation, it's time for another catch-up with the Farm! Full disclosure, I am incredibly hungover. Last night I met up with a cousin of mine, whom I had not seen in over four years! Like the genius I am, I didn't eat anything prior to meeting up, and then I went on … Continue reading 3/7/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Charlotte Checkers

3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The Utica Comets are inside the final 20 games of the season, and holy guacamole, do they have a month in store for them! Two 3-in-4's to start the month, then a Tuesday game that immediately follows a double-header weekend. Afterwards, it's a triple header, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, mid-month, concluding with two more 3-in-4's at … Continue reading 3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

In a battle between mediocre North Division teams playing roller-coaster hockey in 2020, the Utica Comets face off with the Toronto Marlies in another inter-divisional matchup. I say roller-coaster because both teams have had brief moments of domination. Toronto's 7-6 comeback win against Belleville or Utica's 6-3 win over Hartford being the primary example of … Continue reading 2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

2/16/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The stakes have never been higher... Last night, the Rochester Americans defeated the Syracuse Crunch via the shootout to give themselves a one-point advantage over the Comets for the second-place standing in the North Division. Nipping at the Comets heels are the surging Toronto Marlies, who are on a four-game win streak and sit only … Continue reading 2/16/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

The Utica Comets are in Laval, Quebec tonight following a disappointing start to their February, with that 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Monsters on the road. The Comets start in 2020 has been a weird one. After a five-game win streak vaulted them to the top spot in the North Division, the Comets floundered with … Continue reading 2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

1/31/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

IT ME! I cannot believe how long it's been since I last recapped a Comets game! After a decent trip to Maui with family, in which I got the flu, crashed my rental car, and then no got sun for the final six days of the trip -- I then had to go cross-country to … Continue reading 1/31/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

12/28/19 – Utica Comets vs. Lehigh Valley Phantoms

What's up Canucks Nation, time for a quick turnaround as the Comets hit the road to take on the Atlantic Divisions, last-place, Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The Phantoms are coming off back-to-back 4-2 losses to division rivals, the Charlotte Checkers, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Phantoms play incredibly dull hockey, having racked up the league's lowest goals-for … Continue reading 12/28/19 – Utica Comets vs. Lehigh Valley Phantoms

12/18/19 – Utica Comets vs. Belleville Senators

Well, the cat’s out of the bag, the Botchford Project has called me up from the minors. I’m ecstatic to be suiting up to get my first taste of NHL action, tomorrow when the Canucks faceoff against their archnemesis, the Vegas Golden Knights. Like the consummate professional I am, and displaying the kind of professionalism … Continue reading 12/18/19 – Utica Comets vs. Belleville Senators

12/13/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Feels like we are in a state of Deja Vu. The Comets are back for another double-header weekend where they, once again, take on the Bridgeport Sound Tigers! The Comets and the Sound Tigers have played three of their four-game series just in the past seven days. With their fourth and final match of the … Continue reading 12/13/19 – Utica Comets vs. Bridgeport Sound Tigers
