WINNIPEG - Eric Comrie learned more than he ever thought possible last year.
Now, after a whirlwind campaign with the Manitoba Moose, the determined young goalie is ready for more.
Comrie entered the season as the backup to Connor Hellebuyck, but after he was recalled to the Jets following an injury to Ondrej Pavelec, the 21-year-old became the de facto starter for the team's top affiliate.
Comrie calls it as a "fortunate" turn of events for him, personally, to get such valuable experience in his first pro season, but there was nothing lucky about it. He took the opportunity and ran with it, posting excellent numbers on a young Moose team that finished the year 15 games below .500.
