After being selected by the Winnipeg Jets in the 2nd round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft (59th overall) Eric Comrie has solidified himself as a top goalie prospect. After playing 51 games for the Moose in 2016-17 Comrie ended up splitting much of last season with Michael Hutchinson but also spent a significant chunk of time up with the big club in relief of former Jets backup goalie Steve Mason.
Today Comrie has a new one-year, two way deal with the Jets worth $650,000.00 at the NHL level.
This will be an interesting season to watch for Comrie as he will try to compete with a new goalie in the mix (Laurent Brossoit) for the Jets backup role and failing that he will end up being the number one guy for the Manitoba Moose.
He spoke today at the IcePlex about signing his new deal:
