Observations:

 

April 2014 - Eric Comrie has been sent to the St. John's Icecaps in the AHL after being eliminated in the WHL playoffs. He had a strong finish to his WHL season and will look to get a start or two in the AHL. -Kevin Won

 

March 2014 - Eric Comrie has been named to the WHL 2nd All-Star Team in the Western Conference. He finished the regular season with a 26-25-4-5 record with a 2.57 GAA and a .925 SV%. He ranked second among WHL goaltenders in save percentage and saves, and ranked sixth in goals against average. These stats are quite good considering the Tri-City Americans finished eighth, barely making it into the playoffs. Although he is 1-2 in the playoffs currently, his save percentage is very impressive, boasting a .941 SV%. Among this stretch featured a stellar 52 save performance in the 4-3 win versus the Rockets where Comrie single-handedly stole the game for the Americans. -Kevin Won

 


December 2013 - Eric Comrie has signed a three year entry-level deal with the Winnipeg Jets, with an average annual value of $925,000. Comrie has played solid this year, posting a 14-13-3 record along with a 2.52 GAA and a .923 SV% on a weak Tri-City Americans team. He was a likely candidate for third goalie on Canada's World Junior Championships roster, however Brent Sutter elected to invite only two goalies. Kevin Won

 

 

September 2013 - Eric Comrie is a lanky goaltender that is currently playing for the Tri-City Americans (WHL). His last season was cut short due to a nagging hip injury that required surgery in early February. He posted a 20-14-3 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA. His strong play prompted a trade involving former American Ty Rimmer to make room for Comrie. He is also half-brother of former NHLers Paul and Mike Comrie, so the bloodlines run strong here. His aggressive style combined with his strong backwards skating allows him to fully utilize this style yet be positionally sound. He reads the play well, has a competitive nature, and has the ability to make game-changing stops. One of his weaknesses that he will have to work on is his rebound control and conditioning.  Now fully healed and with no competition in the way, look for Comrie to be among the leaders in WHL goaltending. This is his first season with a full workload and his hip will be put to the test. He will also be one of the candidates for the Canadian World Junior squad this season. Kevin Won

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

Comrie has a lot of raw potential and could be a number one goalie in the future.
