Comeau recorded a goal and an assist in Monday's win over the Jets. The goal came on an empty net to seal the win, but it's just Comeau's second of the year so he'll take them any way he can get them. After somewhat of a slow start, the winger now has five points in his past six contests.
As expected, Comeau is playing in Tuesday's matchup with the Flyers. Although his status was never officially confirmed prior to puck drop, as expected, Comeau is playing in Tuesday's tilt against Philadelphia. He logged 6:45 of ice time and a single shot on goal in the first period of the contest.
Comeau missed practice Monday due to a personal matter, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports. Comeau left the team after a death in the family, but he's expected to rejoin them in Philadelphia in time for Tuesday's contest against the Flyers. If he does miss that game, his next chance to slot back into the lineup will come Thursday in Boston.
Comeau has only one point through the first five regular season games. Comeau's lone point came on Oct. 16 when he assisted John Mitchell's 30-foot, empty-net wrist shot. The first-line left wing's empty net assist and seven missed shots show his unspectacular start to the 2015-16 campaign. His time has depleted from 17 minutes to only 15 since the start of the season as the 29-year-old is now seeing less time on the ice than second and third-line wings Gabriel Landeskog and Alex Tanguay.
Blake Comeau signed a three-year, $7.2 million contract with the Avalanche on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports.
