In Red Wings Land
Detroit — The Red Wings may have acquired their goaltender of the future.
The Wings acquired goaltender Eric Comrie Saturday from Arizona in exchange for defenseman Vili Saarijarvi.
”I don’t know too much about him,” coach Jeff Blashill said before Saturday’s game. “Steve (Yzerman) mentioned to me this morning he was making this trade. But I don’t know a lot about him as a player.”
Comrie has a 2-3-0 record with a 4.21 GAA and .870 SV% in five career NHL starts (all with the Jets). Those numbers are far from impressive, but we’ll have to wait and see what the 24-year-old netminder brings to Detroit.
These Sabres jerseys just might be the ugliest ever worn by an NHL team.
