"I'm impressed with all of them" That was Komet coach-general manager Ken Ullyot's response today when asked about the rookies in the Komet training camp.
"I'm real pleased with what I have seen so far. Davidson (Doug) has displayed a real deft touch around the net. The others are working hard and I would say they have all looked good," he continued.
BURTON HAS FOUND HIS HOME IN FORT WAYNE
by Gina Jones
At four years of age, Jimmy Burton played his first hockey game, and at 25 he's returned for his sixth season with the Komets. He evidently hasn't tired of the game yet. "I'm real happy to be back. It's kinda like home now. I was looking forward to the new season," said Burton.
At the end of last year, Burton had decided he was going to return to Fort Wayne this fall if he could get his contract with Buffalo worked out. He was released from his contract this past summer. Is the light shining at the end of the N.H.L. tunnel still? "Yeah, you never know. Hockey's a funny sport. When you think you're done, something comes along. I'm happy here though. I'm happy playing with the Komets," states Burton.
