Comets recall goalie Mitens


UTICA — The Utica Comets has recalled goaltender Mareks Mitens from the Adirondack Thunder of the ECHL. This move comes in concert with the New Jersey Devils recall of Comets’ goaltender Nico Daws. 

Mitens, 23, played four seasons at Lake Superior State University before signing an amateur tryout contract with the Binghamton Devils. In four appearances with Binghamton last season, Mitens went 1-3 with a 2.81 goals against average and a .899 save percentage. Mitens, born in Latvia, finished his senior year with a WCHA Championship and trip to the NCAA Tournament. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound goaltender was named to the WCHA Second All-Star Team during the 2020-21 campaign.

The Comets will play their second game of the season tonight at the Adirondack Bank Center against the Providence Bruins at 7.

Saturday night, the team will travel to Syracuse for their first road game as they play their division rival, the Crunch at 7. The Comets are 1-0 on the season.
