Jamie Schaafsma of Blenheim will be returning to the ECHL’s Fort Wayne Komets for his 15th season of professional hockey after resigning with the team Thursday.

The 35 year old has been the Komets captain for 3 seasons, and is also currently serving as a player-assistant coach.

“Having our captain back was a priority for us this summer,” Komet general manager David Franke said in a team news release. “Jamie Schaafsma’s leadership on and off the ice is very important to our overall success. Jamie can play all three forward positions and defense if needed. He still has the fire to win and we are fortunate to have him, his wife Nicole and their four children returning to the Komet family.”

Last season, Schaafsma scored 12 goals and 27 points in 48 games.

Schaafsma has a knack for winning, capturing back-to-back CHL titles in 2013 and 2014, winning the ECHL’s Kelly Cup in 2015, and also winning titles while playing internationally in the Netherlands and Italy.
