The deal is of the two-way variety, and will carry a salary of $650K if Comrie spends the year with the big club. If he plays in the American Hockey League the 23-year-old will make $125K, with $175K guaranteed. 

After playing four years with the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League, Comrie transitioned to the AHL where has shared the crease for the Manitoba Moose with a variety of other netminders. In three full season of AHL play, the Edmonton, AB. native has a 55-67-12 record in 136 games.

Last season, in 34 AHL contests, Comrie went 18-13-3 with a .916 save percentage and a 2.58 goals against average, helping the Moose to a 42-26-8 record – good for third in the Central Division – before dressing in nine playoff games for Manitoba. 

Comrie was also called upon on three occasions to play for the big club in Winnipeg as well. He skated in three games for the Jets, picking up his second NHL win, and two losses to go with it. In 180 minutes of NHL action, Comrie stopped 82 pucks and allowed 12 goals, finishing the year with a .872 save percentage and a 3.99 goals against average in the NHL. 

With Comrie now having re-signed in Winnipeg, General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff just has RFA defenceman Josh Morrissey to worry about locking down. Morrissey is one of 11 NHL restricted free agents that still need to sign new deals before the 2018-19 hockey season.
