Comrie Gets 1st Chance at WHL Net

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Tri-City Americans dropped game 2 of their playoff series with Spokane Sunday night, evening the series at a game apiece. Game 3 is Tuesday at the Toyota Center.

On the bright side, 15-year-old netminder Eric Comrie saw his first WHL action ever, just days after signing with Tri-City.

Comrie came in the game in the 3rd period and stopped 13 of the 14 shots put his way.

"I was a little nervous but once I got in, the nerves went away," said Comrie. "It was fun, a lot of fun."

"I thought he was really good," said Ams Head Coach Jim Hiller. "I mean he's been really good this week in practice. We had no reservations about putting him in even though he is a young guy. He's got a lot of poise and a lot of confidence and those are two of the key elements in any athlete. You have to have poise, you have to have confidence and he has both."
