The Fort Wayne Komets are a minor league ice hockey team in the ECHL. The team was previously a member of the Central Hockey League and the International Hockey League before it ceased operations and several of its former teams joined the CHL in 2010. The Komets also played in the previous incarnation of the International Hockey League from 1952 until 1999, when they joined the UHL. They have won seven post-season championship titles in the IHL in 1963, 1965, 1973, 1993, 2008, 2009 and 2010, one in the UHL in 2003, and one in the CHL in 2012. They play their home games at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The original franchise moved to Albany, New York in 1990, and the Flint Spirits moved to Fort Wayne and assumed the Komets name and history. The original Komets franchise played one season as the Albany Choppers before folding. In all of North American professional hockey, only the Original Six teams of the NHL and the Hershey Bears of the AHL have played continuously in the same city with the same name longer than the Komets.
