The Detroit Red Wings acquired goaltender Eric Comrie from the Arizona Coyotes last week to add depth to their crease following an injury to starter Jimmy Howard.

And now, he’s itching to get started with his new team.

“For sure, I’m excited about the opportunity,” Comrie said. “I’m excited to go out and hopefully play some games.

“I was surprised (about the trade). I was having a lot of fun in Arizona, just practicing and getting used to being there and it was good. I was pretty surprised when I got the call.”

With goaltender Calvin Pickard back on his way to the Griffins, Comrie will back up goaltender Jonathan Bernier for now. For head coach Jeff Blashill, he’s happy about the addition to the goaltending position.

“Right now, it’s just more depth in the goaltending position,” Blashill said. “Pick (Pickard) came in, and it was a weird game for him in Philadelphia (a 6-1 loss). We didn’t give up much, but when we did give up something it was a big chance, so it wasn’t a fair assessment of the goalie.

“Pick is a real good pro, he’s a great pro, but they’ve had some struggles there (in Grand Rapids) as well, and what Comrie does is gives us more depth in that position.”
