It’s been more than a month since Eric Comrie stopped a puck for the Tri-City Americans.
The starting goaltender at the beginning of the season, Comrie was 20-14-1-2 in 37 games, with a 2.62 goals-against average, a .915 save percentage, and two shutouts before he was shelved for the season Jan. 18.
After two hip surgeries, Comrie, 17, is on the mend in his hometown of Newport Beach, Calif.
“I’m doing much better than before,” Comrie said in a telephone interview. “There’s a lot of rehab — 6 hours a day. The thing about rehab is you feel it every day. It’s easy to do and it feels so much better. I’m really happy with how it’s gone.”
Comrie had minor surgery on his left hip Feb. 5 in Vail, Colo., then had the right side done six days later.
