The Jets put Comrie on waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Comrie didn't see any action with Winnipeg after the club claimed him off waivers Dec. 19 and will now go through waivers again. If he goes without a claim, Comrie will presumably wind up in the AHL ranks.
Comrie was snatached off waivers by the Jets from the Red Wings on Thursday. Comrie was originally selected by Winnipeg with the 59th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and appeared in five games for the club. The Jets lost Comrie to the Coyotes before the start of the season when they tried to move him to the minors and now jumped at the opportunity to bring the netminder back into the fold.
Detroit placed Comrie on waivers Wednesday, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports. Jimmy Howard (groin) should be ready to return Saturday against Toronto, so the Red Wings are no longer in need of Comrie's services as a backup netminder. As long as he clears waivers, the 24-year-old will be assigned to AHL Grand Rapids.
Comrie allowed four goals on 32 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Kings. Comrie was making his second start since joining the Red Wings and has given up nine goal goals on 62 shots in those two outings. That's an .855 save percentage and that's not good. With Jimmy Howard out due to a lower-body injury, Comrie will continue to spell Jonathan Bernier on occasion for the foreseeable future.
Comrie will guard the home cage for Sunday's tilt against the Kings, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Comrie will make his second start with the Red Wings after coughing up five goals on 30 shots against Winnipeg on Dec. 10. The 24-year-old netminder owns a 4.24 GAA and .867 save percentage in seven career NHL appearances. He should be largely ignored in most fantasy formats.
