Comrie was promoted from AHL Manitoba on Monday. Before fantasy owners start to panic, AHL Manitoba didn't qualify for the Calder Cup Playoffs, so the move is probably just about adding an extra netminder for practice, rather than an indication that Connor Hellebuyck or Laurent Brossoit is dealing with an injury. The 23-year-old Comrie went 25-20-2 with a .917 save percentage in 47 minor-league contests this season and played in just one game for Winnipeg. Considering Brossoit will be a restricted free agent this summer and almost certainly retained by the team, Comrie probably shouldn't be expected to get a shot at the 23-man roster coming out of camp next season.
Comrie was demoted to AHL Manitoba on Thursday. Comrie's reassignment all but guarantees Laurent Brossoit (leg) is healthy enough to suit up as the No. 2 behind Connor Hellebuyck for Game 2 versus St. Louis on Friday. The 23-year-old Comrie is 23-16-4 with a .916 save percentage in 45 minor-league appearances this season and will try to help the Moose secure a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
Comrie allowed five goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Wild. Comrie made his first NHL appearance of the season since Laurent Brossoit (leg) was on the shelf and the team was playing on the second half of back-to-back games. This was not an ideal outcome, as the 23-year-old yielded three goals in the first period and the Jets couldn't climb back. Comrie isn't expected to play for the Jets again this season unless Connor Hellebuyck gets injured.
Comrie will guard the cage Tuesday versus the Wild in Minneapolis, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports. With Laurent Brossoit (leg) still on the mend and Connor Hellebuyck in need of a rest after making his seventh consecutive start Monday against the Blackhawks, Comrie will make his first start of the 2018-19 campaign at the NHL level. His past few forays into the crease didn't end well, as Comrie sports a career GAA north of four and a save percentage under .900.
Comrie was called up under emergency conditions from AHL Manitoba on Friday. Comrie's promotion comes as Laurent Brossoit (leg) was forced to exit Tuesday's matchup with Vegas in the second period. The 23-year-old Comrie may only get one chance to play if Brossoit is out long term, as the Jets' last back-to-back is April 1-2 against Chicago and Minnesota, respectively.
