FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Ben Boudreau will try to capture a second Kelly Cup with the Komets next season.

Wednesday, the Komets announced Boudreau will return for a fourth season as Fort Wayne’s head coach. The team will also retain assistant coach Olivier Legault.

Boudreau, 37, has compiled an overall record of 100-65-15-5 during his first three seasons as the Komets head coach. Boudreau joined the Komets organization in 2017, working two seasons as an assistant coach under Gary Graham.

The Komets were on track for a postseason appearance during Boudreau’s first season as head coach, before the season got canceled due to the pandemic. In year two, he led Fort Wayne to its first championship since joining the ECHL.

Komets general manager David Franke had glowing remarks about his head coach in Wednesday’s press release.

“I enjoy working with Ben in all phases of the club,” Franke said. “Ben is a tireless worker, passionate and gets the Komet culture in Fort Wayne.”
