FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Shawn Szydlowski has become a staple for sports fans in the Summit City over the last several years.
Earlier this week, Komets fans received good news when the team announced Szydlowski would return for his eighth season with the franchise.
According to Komets play-by-play man Shane Albahrani, Szyd is set to become just the 11th player in the 69 year history of the organization to skate with the K's for eight consecutive seasons.
The 29-year old is coming off of a campaign in which he was among the ECHL's leaders with 41 assists in 55 games.
AJ Jenks and Anthony Petruzzelli have also agreed to return to the K's this fall.
