For Eric Comrie, Wednesday’s selection to the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game was an honor not only for himself, but for the Tri-City Americans.
“This is really exciting,” Comrie said. “I’m excited to represent my team and showcase myself for the scouts against other top players. I have to thank my teammates for helping me out.”
Comrie, the Americans’ starting goaltender, is the fifth Tri-City player to be selected for the game, following in the footsteps of forward Scott Gomez (1998), defenseman Shawn Belle (2003), and goalies Carey Price (2005) and Chet Pickard (2008).
Also, former Americans coach Don Nachbaur was an assistant for Team White in 2008, coaching alongside Grant Fuhr and Glenn Anderson.
