from Josh Wingrove at the Globe and Mail,
“Don’t take a picture of this,” pleads Mike Comrie, looking nervously over his shoulder as he lights several candles in his living room. Designer blankets bearing a giant “H” adorn the chairs and couches.
“My street cred is going to go down,” he says, with a grin.
The candles and blankets, as well as the bodyguard and pets (four dogs, two cats) are all part of newlywed life for Comrie. Three weeks ago, he married his girlfriend of three years. They had just enough time for a quick honeymoon – four days across the Mexican border in ritzy Cabo San Lucas – before rushing back to Los Angeles. He was in training for the National Hockey League season, although he had no idea where he would play.
A decade in the league has seen him with five teams, some more than once, but he is still most closely associated with Edmonton. It’s where he grew up and started his career with great fanfare, signing a multimillion-dollar contract live on Hockey Night in Canada.
