Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

It’s going to be a special day for Eric Comrie, who will be making his first start for the Red Wings.

The fact that the start is coming against the Winnipeg Jets, the team that originally drafted him in the second round, 59th overall, in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, and will take place at Bell MTS Place, is the icing on the cake.

“Honestly, just looking to have a lot of fun out there,” Comrie said after the team’s optional morning skate. “It’s pretty exciting to play against a former team, a lot of friends on the other side, it’s going to be a lot of fun. Hoping to get a win for our team over here.

“I know this building pretty well, I’ve played a lot of minutes in this building. I’ve always enjoyed playing in front of the crowd and now it’s going to be kind of different, playing against the crowd.”

continued and more topics too…

Wow he is young, but that doesn’t mean that you aren’t getting old!

A really really younger brother to Mike Comrie.

I hope Comrie can help this team snap a 11-game losing streak. I’m not optimistic that we can do it, but it’d be amazing if it gets done.
