"Blake will be a great addition to our forward group with his skill set and ability to play anywhere in the lineup," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "His elite speed makes him a disruptive defensive presence and he fits well with what head coach Jim Montgomery is trying to accomplish."
Comeau was selected by the New York Islanders in the second round (No. 47) of the 2004 NHL Draft. He has played three seasons with Colorado and has 285 points (121 goals, 164 assists) in 720 NHL games with the Avalanche, Pittsburgh Penguins, Columbus Blue Jackets, Calgary Flames and Islanders. He has three goals in 17 playoff games.
