Fort Wayne, Ind. - The Fort Wayne Komets announced that rookie goaltender Brett Brochu and forward Matthew Wedman have agreed to terms for the 2023-24 season.  

In his first season with London of the Ontario Hockey League in 2019-20, Brochu posted a record of 32-6-0 with a save percentage of .919 and a league-best goals against average of 2.40. During his sophomore season with the Knights, Brochu was awarded the Jim Rutherford Trophy as the league's top goaltender with a record of 29-11-2, making him the first Knights goalie to win the award since former Komet Michael Houser in 2012. He also won gold with Team Canada at the World Juniors. Last season, Brochu carried a record of 28-17-2 and went 9-1-0 in the playoffs with a goals-against average of 1.48.

Brochu made his professional debut by appearing in one game with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League during the 2020-21 season and participated in the Vancouver Canucks developmental camp.

Wedman spent five seasons in the Western Hockey League, scoring 92 goals with Seattle and Kelowna. The 24-year-old turned pro during the 2020-21 season, skating in 34 games with Greenville. The Edmonton, Alberta, native played the last two seasons with Belleville of the AHL, collecting 25 points (14g-11a) in 111 contests. The Florida Panthers selected Wedman in the seventh round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
