Two of the brightest young stars in the Winnipeg Jets’ system are going to have their seasons extended in the American Hockey League.
As expected, the Jets have re-assigned goaltender Eric Comrie and defenceman Josh Morrissey from their Western Hockey League clubs to the St. John’s IceCaps.
The 18-year-old Comrie played in 60 games with the Tri-City Americans this season, going 26-25-9 while posting a 2.57 goals against average and .925 save percentage. The Edmonton product ranked second in the WHL for save percentage and saves (1,849), was third in games played and minutes (3,523) and sixth in goals against average.
As well, Comrie was the WHL’s top goaltender in January. He was drafted by the Jets in the second round (59th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.
Morrissey, 19, played in 59 games with the Prince Albert Raiders, and racked up 73 points on 28 goals (a Raiders’ record) and 45 assists. He is the Eastern Conference nominee for the 2014 WHL Defenceman of the Year Bill Hunter Memorial Trophy. A member of Canada’s World Junior team this winter, Morrissey was selected by the Jets in the first round (13th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.
