Komets sign Pochiro, Shea returning

Fort Wayne, Ind. - The Fort Wayne Komets announced that forward Zach Pochiro has agreed to terms for the upcoming season while defenseman Bobby Shea will be returning to Fort Wayne after a two-year absence.

Pochiro finished third in the ECHL in goals with 34 during the 2018-19 season while playing for the Allen Americans. Last season the 26-year-old skated in Demark with Esbjerg Energy where he tallied 34 points with 133 penalty minutes in 41 games. A fourth-round selection of his hometown St. Louis Blues in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Pochiro has played portions of six seasons in the ECHL with Kalamazoo, Alaska, Quad City, Norfolk and Allen. 

Shea, 30, will be returning to Fort Wayne after a season in Beijing, China playing for former Komets head coach Gary Graham. The Harrison Township, Michigan native did not play in 2018-19 after manning the Komets blueline from 2016-18. Shea made his ECHL debut at the end of the 2012-13 season with Reading helping the Royals to a Kelly Cup championship. Since then he has collected 596 penalty minutes during his time in the ECHL and American Hockey League.
