April 2020 – What a roller coaster ride for Comrie this season as he moved around three NHL teams — the Red Wings, Coyotes and Jets. Once a highly touted goaltending prospect, he can’t seem to stick it out for long with one club. Comrie still has next year remaining on his contract with the Jets and it will be interesting to see if he can beat out Laurent Brossoit for any real backup time behind Connor Hellebuyck. Jamie Zadow

November 2019 – Comrie is on the move again, this time traded to Detroit for defenseman Vili Saarijarvi. Comrie never appeared in an NHL game for Arizona, the only playing time he saw this year so far was a conditioning stint with Tucson. There he won all four games Comrie started, posting a 2.75 goals-against average and .900 save percentage. This seems to be a great opportunity for Comrie, much better chance at an NHL spot than in Winnipeg and Arizona. With Jimmy Howard currently injured and not signed beyond next season and Jonathan Bernier signed through next year also-and no clear-cut option in Grand Rapids, this will be Comrie first real chance to prove he’s an NHL caliber goalie. Unfortunately, fantasy wise with the Red Wings struggling this year it’s hard to see Comrie putting up good stats. Keith Duggan 

October 2019 – In a surprising move to begin the 2019-20 campaign, the Coyotes claimed Comrie off waivers from the Winnipeg Jets. Entering the season, Arizona was billed to have a strong goaltending duo, so Comrie will be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper. This move seems to be a safety net for Raanta, who’s missed significant time the past few years. “Obviously Antti hasn’t played a lot of games in the last 10, 11 months,” Coyotes General Manager John Chayka spoke after the move. “So as he’s getting up to speed and getting back to where we know he can get to, this just gives another option.” Keith Duggan

March 2019 – Comrie has found his groove in the Moose net this year, earning high praise from head coach Pascal Vincent. The 23-year-old has been a steady presence in the crease and his .919 SV% currently ranks sixth amongst AHL goaltenders. Jamie Zadow

May 2018 – Comrie had a cup of 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
