INDEPENDENCE, MO. – Forward Ramone Palmer, who just completed his sixth MASL season with the Comets, will also play his home games at Cable Dahmer Arena for the next two seasons following the announcement of his new contract by Kansas City today. Per team and league policies, the terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Palmer joined the Comets before the MASL’s inaugural season in 2014-15 and has appeared in 101 regular-season games in six seasons since. He has tallied 53 goals and 45 assists during those campaigns. He has added six goals and seven assists in six playoff seasons with the Comets.

After becoming a member of the Comets in 2012, he was on the 2013-14 MISL Championship team which bested the Baltimore Blast two games to one to claim the title, including a 15-8 Game One win at home.

Last season he played in six post-season games for the Comets and that will not be enough for him next season. “I’m happy to be back with one of the best organizations in the league. I am working hard this off-season to be back at full strength and help my team get over that hurdle we fell short of the last two seasons” he said.

A lot of Palmer’s hard work is recouping from a recent surgery and Comets owner Brian Budzinski believes Palmer is going to rebound in a strong way.

“Ramone’s professionalism and passion are why he has been a stalwart in the midfield for us for years. We expect a bounce-back year for Ramone after last off-season’s knee surgery,” said Budzinski.
