Kalamazoo, MI – The Florida Everblades will celebrate Thanksgiving with an interdivision matchup as they take on the Fort Wayne Komets Thursday at Memorial Coliseum.

Florida goalie Kristers Gudlevskis has shined in net, leading the ECHL in GAA with a mark of 1.68, while team captain Mathieu Roy has paced the Blades’ offense with five goals in his last four games.
Winners of four of their last six games, the Komets are led offensively by Mickey Lang, who is tops in the ECHL with 13 goals—one ahead of Blades winger Matthew Pistilli.
