The Winnipeg Jets announced on Wednesday that they have signed 2013 second-round draft pick, goaltender Eric Comrie, to a entry-level contract.
Comrie’s deal is a three-year, two-way contract with an average annual value of $925,000.
Comrie, 18, has played in 30 games with the Tri-City Americans of the WHL so far this season. In that time, the Edmonton, AB native has earned a 14-13-3 record, 2.52 goals against average and 0.923 save percentage. He has played in 98 career WHL games, all with the Americans, for a 53-33-8 career record.
Comrie, who is a half-brother to former NHLers Mike and Paul Comrie, is also the son of The Brick founder, Bill Comrie.
He was originally drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the second round, 59th overall, in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft,
