Observations

May 2018 – Comrie had a cup off coffee in the NHL when he was an emergency call-up in mid-March when veteran Steve Mason was sidelined with a knee injury. The 22-year-old didn’t capitalize on the opportunity, going 1-2-0 with a 3.99 GAA and .872 SV% in three games. Comrie was part of a platoon in the crease for the Moose with Michael Hutchison last season and for now, he’s firmly planted behind Connor Hellebuyck on the depth chart. It would appear Comrie could get a shot to be his backup next season if the Jets decide to move on from the Mason experiment. Jamie Zadow

February 2018 – Comrie is mired in a goaltending battle with Michael Hutchinson this year, but that’s a good problem to have for the Moose. The Jets have plenty of goaltending depth in their system and Comrie is enjoying his best AHL campaign yet with a 15-8-2 record, 2.54 GAA and .921 SV% in 25 games. At just 22, the Jets can take their time with Comrie — especially with the resurgence of Connor Hellebuyck this season — and continue to allow him to get comfortable with the pro game. Jamie Zadow

September 2017 – Comrie was invited to Jets training camp where he shared a rather crowded crease. The Jets goaltending situation seems like a blur and they are likely grooming Comrie to be their netminder of the future. With free agent acquisition Steve Mason and highly touted Connor Hellebuyck ahead of him on the depth chart, expect Comrie to start the year in the AHL where he appeared in 51 games for the Moose last season. Jamie Zadow

May 2017 – Comrie may be the long-term winner of the Winnipeg Jet’s future starting goaltender war. Connor Hellebuyck is currently the starter in Winnipeg, but the extra development Comrie has received playing with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose may end up paying off long term dividends. He was a little shaky in his lone NHL start this past season, but was a model of consistency in the AHL posting a 2.96 GAA in 51 games. A little more confidence and Comrie could look to get some platoon talk in goal for the Jets in the next season or two and it wouldn’t surprise some if he eventually ended up their starting goalie of the future. David Dickenson
