Jets Sign Comrie to Two-Year Deal

The six-foot, 180-pound backstop’s deal will be of the two-year variety in the coming season, in which Comrie will make $700K if spending the season at the NHL level. If he plays the coming year in the minors, Comrie will make $200K. In 2020-21, Comrie’s deal will shift to a one-year style contract, in which he will make $700K, regardless of where he plays out the season.

Comrie, 24, has spent the past five seasons within the Winnipeg Jets’ organization, since being drafted 59th overall in the second round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Despite four solid seasons with the Western Hockey League’s Tri-City Americans, Comrie has been unable to crack the Jets roster in five attempts.

Over the past five seasons in the American Hockey League with the Manitoba Moose and the former St. John’s IceCaps, the Edmonton, AB. native holds a 77-87-14 record with eight shutouts in 183 regular season games. Over the past two seasons with the Moose, Comrie is 43-33-5, with a 2.64 goals against average and a .917 save percentage.
