The Clinton Comets: An EHL Dynasty
By Fred Zalatan ’85
November 1, 2004
Described as “a comprehensive history of the glory years of the Clinton Comets,” it is the story of Clinton, New York’s own professional hockey team during the era (1954-73) when “old-time hockey” was at its best. Thanks to the team, a member of the Eastern Hockey League, Clinton became known as “the biggest little hockey town in the U.S.A.” This volume is replete with a detailed statistical compendium but unfortunately no index. The co-author, a Utica native, biologist and rabid hockey fan, resides with his wife and two sons in Cooperstown, N.Y.
