Comrie was promoted to Winnipeg's taxi squad Wednesday. Comrie will likely stick with the big club for the duration of its upcoming seven-game road trip. The 25-year-old netminder hasn't seen NHL action since he allowed three goals on 33 shots as a member of the Devils in a 5-3 win over Buffalo on Jan. 31.
Comrie was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Friday. The Jets had hoped to move Comrie down at the start of the season when they placed him on waivers but he was picked up by the Devils instead. After New Jersey also waived the 25-year-old netminder, Winnipeg was able to bring him back into the fold. Unless there is an injury to Connor Hellebuyck or Laurent Brossoit, fantasy managers shouldn't expect Comrie to see any more NHL action this year.
Comrie was snatched off the waiver wire by the Jets on Thursday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports, and he was designated for the taxi squad. Since being waived by Winnipeg in September 2019, Comrie has moved from Arizona to Detroit, back to Winnipeg, then to New Jersey before finally returning to the Jets. Despite the organization's clear interest in having him in the system, Comrie will continue to serve as the No. 3 option, at best, for the Jets behind Connor Hellebuyck and Laurent Brossoit.
Comrie was waived by the Devils on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports. MacKenzie Blackwood and Scott Wedgewood are locked in as New Jersey's top-two options in goal, so Comrie will likely head to the Devils' taxi squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed. The 25-year-old backstop has started one game this season, turning aside 30 of 33 shots en route to a 5-3 win over the Sabres on Jan. 31.
Comrie cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Sunday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports. Comrie is expected to slot in as the Devils' taxi-squad goalie once they're able to play again. He could challenge Scott Wedgewood for the backup job as well.
