The Fort Wayne Komets are a minor league hockey franchise currently playing in the International Hockey League. The Komets played in the previous incarnation of the International Hockey League from 1952 until 1999, when they joined the United Hockey League (which took the IHL name in 2007). They have won five post-season championship titles in the IHL in 1963, 1965, 1973, 1993, and 2008 and one in the UHL in 2003. They play their home games at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The current Komets franchise replaced the original Fort Wayne Komets that relocated and became the Albany Choppers in 1990 before folding in that same season. In all of North American professional hockey, only the Original Six teams of the NHL and the Hershey Bears of the AHL have played continuously in the same city with the same name longer than the Komets.
