Winnipeg Reunites with Eric Comrie on Two-Year Deal

Eric Comrie of the Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets have signed unrestricted free-agent goaltender Eric Comrie to a two-year contract worth $825,000. This will be Comrie’s third stint in the Winnipeg Jets organization and provides some goaltending depth for the team.

Comrie, 28, was drafted in the second round at 59th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He played in the Western Hockey League with the Tri-City Americans from the 2010-11 season to the 2014-15 season. Comrie got his professional start with the St. John’s IceCaps in the 2013-14 season where he played two AHL games.

In the following season, he only found himself suiting up for three AHL games where he began to find his footing. In the 2015-16 season, Comrie got the nod to suit up for 46 games for the returning Manitoba Moose where he posted a .907 save percentage (SV%) and a 3.12 goals against average (GAA).

Comrie would have to wait another season before getting his first NHL game with the Winnipeg Jets, and it wasn’t until the 2021-22 season that Comrie would get an expanded backup goaltender role with Winnipeg. This was during Comrie’s second stint where he played 19 games and posted a .920 SV% and a 2.58 GAA. This led to Comrie finding a new home in the 2022-23 season with the Buffalo Sabres where he spent two seasons being called up to the NHL and sent down to the AHL’s Rochester Americans.

Across Comrie’s AHL career, he’s spent parts of 10 seasons where he’s played 214 games. His AHL win-loss record stands at 94-95-34 currently with a .912 SV% and a 2.81 GAA. In parts of eight NHL seasons, Comrie has played 57 games for Winnipeg, New Jersey, Detroit, and Buffalo. He’s accumulated a win-loss record of 24-26-2 and posted a .893 SV% and a 3.38 GAA.
