Tri-City Herald: Comrie lost for rest of season

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

A hip injury that has kept Tri-City Americans goalie Eric Comrie sidelined for a week requires surgery. Comrie, in his first year as a starter, will miss the remainder of the season.

“It sucks right now,” Comrie said Friday afternoon. “It is better to do it (surgery) while it is minor. The doctors say I will be more flexible, have better range of motion and be pain-free.”

Comrie said he has been experiencing pain for awhile, but it started to get worse after the Subway Super Series in November. After last week’s game in Kamloops, Comrie has watched from the bench. He also missed out on playing in Wednesday’s CHL/NHL Top Prospect’s game.

Comrie had tests earlier this week that revealed the damage. He will have surgery Feb. 5 in Vail, Colo., then return home to California for rehab. He should be back on the ice in 3-4 months.
