Anaheim assigned Comtois to AHL San Diego on Friday.
San Diego is currently taking on Bakersfield in the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs, so Comtois will add some extra fire power to the Gulls' lineup for the remainder of their postseason run. The 2017 second-round pick racked up 31 goals and 48 points in 25 appearances with QMJHL Drummondville this campaign.
Comtois (shoulder) posted a hat trick and added two assists in QMJHL Drummondville's 8-2 win over Val-d'Or on Saturday.
With four goals and seven points in two games since returning to the lineup, Comtois is clearly over the separated shoulder he suffered at the World Junior Championship in early January. Drummondville added a bunch of talent to its roster (Comtois included) at the QMJHL trade deadline and the team should remain one of the league's best the rest of the way. Expect Comtois' numbers to rise as a result.
Comtois, a prospect for the Ducks, sustained a separated shoulder at the world junior hockey championship, Josh Beneteau of Sportsnet reports, adding that the forward will miss the next two weeks to the detriment of the QMJHL's Drummondville.
Comtois made serious noise with the Ducks to begin his NHL career, adding two goals on a 22.2 shooting percentage to go along with five assists through the first 10 games of the 2018-19 season. As noted by Sportsnet, the Canadian took a lot of heat on social media for missing a penalty shot in a quarterfinal match of world juniors against Finland, but he remains an intriguing dynasty stash despite the missed opportunity and even his latest injury, which he played through.
Comtois was reassigned to QMJHL Drummondville on Saturday, Josh Beneteau of Sportsnet reports.
Comtois cracked the Opening Night roster and dropped jaws with two goals and five assists through his first 10 games, but the Quebec native sustained a lower-body injury, and the Ducks had little choice but to send him back to junior since he was only eligible to be on his conditioning assignment for 14 days. Comtois produced 92 goals and 104 assists over 180 games for Victoriaville of the QMJHL over three seasons between 2015-18.
Comtois (lower body) was sent to AHL San Diego on Saturday for conditioning purposes, Mikael Lalancette of TVA Sports reports.
Comtois has missed the past eight games, so it's no surprise that the Ducks have placed him in the minors for conditioning. The Quebec native produced two goals and five assists over his first 10 NHL contests leading up to the unfortunate lower-body injury. He remains on injured reserve, but a conditioning assignment usually suggests that the player is on the verge of returning to action.
Comtois (lower body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Comtois will be eligible to return Nov. 1 against the Rangers. The 19-year-old rookie has been stellar for the Ducks, with the winger accumulating two goals and five assists through his first 10 games at the top level.
Comtois (lower body) is considered day-to-day and not in the lineup for Thursday's contest in Dallas.
Comtois' lower-body injury will get the benefit of two days off and it's possible he misses no games at all. If the 19-year-old left winger misses an extended period, Joseph Blandisi is likely to absorb his minutes.
Comtois recorded an assist, two hits and five PIM in Wednesday's 4-1 home win over the Islanders.
Wait, this kid is a rookie? Comtois certainly isn't playing like one, as he has recorded exactly one point in six of his first seven NHL games. At this rate, It's tough to envision him being reassigned to Victoriaville of the QMJHL.
Comtois found the back of the net in Saturday's 1-0 win over Arizona.
The 19-year-old rookie has gotten off to a phenomenal start, scoring in each of his first two games. His early on knack for scoring has already paid dividends, as Comtois' goal was the only one in the game. A jump from 11:16 in the opener to 5:05 on Saturday proves there is opportunity for an expanded role going forward.
Comtois scored one goal on two shots in his NHL debut Wednesday, helping the Ducks to a 5-2 road win over the Sharks.
Comtois saw 11:16 of ice time in the season opener. There should be plenty more where that came from for the 2017 second-round (50th overall) pick, as a handful of Ducks forwards are banged up to start the season.
Comtois will be on the Ducks' 23-man roster, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
When Comtois signed his entry-level deal in March, it was probably a pipe dream that he'd still be with the parent club in early October. However, the Ducks are decimated with injuries up front, and the 2017 second-round (50th overall) pick dazzled to the tune of three goals and an assist over five preseason contests. He'll be an interesting DFS option in the infancy of the 2018-19 campaign.
Comtois signed an entry-level deal with the Ducks on Saturday.
After three years in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Comtois accrued 87 goals and 184 points in 175 games. The 19-year-old has a 6-foot-2, 212-pound frame, so he has the looks of a strong power forward and brings some attitude as well with 77 PIM in 49 games this season. Comtois will probably spend the rest of the season in the minors, but he'll likely be given a look in next season's training camp to see if he can fit in with the top-nine forwards.
