FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Komets announced today that defenseman Brendon Michaelian has agreed to terms for the upcoming season. The club will open its 72nd training camp on Monday, October 9.

Michaelian, 25, skated three seasons at Robert Morris University before transferring to Ferris State for the 2021-22 season. The 6’0 defender played his final college season at Mercyhurst University. The Wixom, Michigan native compiled 11 goals and 38 assists for 49 total points in 141 NCAA games.

“Brendon is another exciting defenseman. He is a great skater and moves the puck well,” said Head Coach Jesse Kallechy. “He will help us break pucks out and create offense. We are excited to bring him to camp and see him compete.”
