Following a six-point week in his Islanders debut, the Canadian center was honored by the NHL
It took less than a week for Mike Comrie to gain the support of Islanders fans world wide, and for his effort, he earned the NHL’s Second Star of the Week honors. In two games, the Edmonton-native scored four goals and two assists to help lead the Islanders to a 2-0-0 record to begin the season.
The Islanders posted consecutive victories over the defending Presidents’ Trophy winners, the Buffalo Sabres. In Buffalo Oct. 5, Comrie tallied two goals, including the winner, and two assists as the Islanders defeated the Sabres, 6-4. The next night on Long Island, Comrie recorded two goals, including the winner, in a 3-2 triumph. Comrie, 27 years old and in his eighth NHL season, signed with New York as a free agent on July 5 after finishing last year with the Stanley Cup finalist Ottawa Senators.
