Komet Goaltender Nick Boucher Ends Hockey Career

FORT WAYNE, Ind (WOWO): Goaltender Nick Boucher has announced his retirement from professional hockey. 

“Obviously leaving the game that you have played your whole life is difficult to do.  I still believe I could play at a high level but do not think it is worth the potential long term effects that another year or more in net could have on my body,” Boucher said.  “I am leaving the game having last skated on Komet ice as a champion, a privilege that few players can say they have had at the end of their careers.  I want to thank the Franke family and the Komet organization from coaches to trainers to office staff and everyone in between for making me feel like a part of the Komet family from the moment I rolled into town 6 years ago.  I could have never guessed when I came here in fall 2007 that such success would follow and that I would learn to call Fort Wayne home.”
