Lasch, 25, began the week dishing three assists in a 7-3 Fort
Wayne home win against Kalamazoo Wednesday. Friday the Lake Forest,
California native followed with his first
career hat trick in a 6-4 loss at Reading. Saturday the skater had a hand in both Komet
goals, assisting on the first and scoring the second for a pair of points in a
3-2 overtime loss at Wheeling. Sunday in Fort Wayne Lasch assisted on the
