FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Kyle Haas said he is excited to come back to the Summit City and the fans that supported him during his first professional season of hockey.
"When I first got to Fort Wayne, I fell in love with it," said Haas.
He continued on saying, "playing in front of all of those fans, I want to show some appreciation towards Fort Wayne, and I don't want to play anywhere else."
As much as it seems the city made an impression on him, he made just as much of one on the city too.
After coming to the K's on a tryout contract, Haas became a fixture in the lineup, playing in 45 games, and recording an ECHL-leading 164 penalty minutes.
He tallied two goals and seven assists on the season, and was named the Komets' Most Improved Player following the end of the season.
Haas was a part of the team's second wave of signings last week.
