The Mohawk Valley Comets was a semi-professional ice hockey team in the North Eastern Hockey League (NEHL) based in Whitestown, New York.

The franchise was a strong team of mostly local talent coming from the Mohawk Valley. The team was 16-4 record and were first place in the regular season. When concerns of Comets players not being available for the final month of the season or playoffs due to their summer jobs starting, Coach Brett Boake requested a schedule change and the season was shortened by a month. The Comets decided 2 days before the playoff weekend that they were not going to participate as not enough players were available and they had financial concerns.

The team did not return for the 2005-06 season.

In 2007-08 Wayne Premo offered to purchase the rights to the Mohawk Valley that were held by the IceCats when league president Jim Cashman wanted to move the IceCats closer to his hometown of Fort Erie, Ontario. Premo located the team in Rome, New York and started the Copper City Chiefs who went 4-4 in their 8 games before the league suspended operations.
