The Komets are part of the six-team International Hockey League, which should not be confused with the old IHL, which was one step below the NHL. The NEW IHL is really just a rehash of the United Hockey League -- commonly dubbed the "U-Haul'' by players in that circuit -- and several steps below the NHL, and below the ECHL in which the Alaska Aces play.
Here's how it breaks down: The American Hockey League is considered AAA minor-league hockey. The ECHL is AA. The IHL falls into the A category, as does the Central Hockey League, where Reiter played last season.
Anyhow, our man Reiter is now part of a Fort Wayne franchise that dates back to 1952, which I believe is the year Chris Chelios debuted in the NHL. Reiter started last season in the ECHL with the Phoenix RoadRunners before moving on to the Laredo Bucks of the CHL (for you Aces fans, that's Hans Benson's old club).
In Laredo, Reiter went 17-6-1 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. He finished second in goals-against average to another former Seawolves stopper, John DeCaro, who was named the league's Goaltender of the Year for the -- damn, I love this name -- Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs.
