The Winnipeg Jets have solidified their AHL goaltending needs with the signing of Eric Comrie to a one-year, two-way contract. In the extremely unlikely chance he makes the NHL this year, he will make $650 000. Being that Comrie has a two-way contract, he will make less in the AHL where he is more than likely to play.

Comrie has been adequate in the AHL and not good in the NHL. It is likely that he will remain in the AHL where he can help his team and not in the NHL where he has struggled in the past.

By signing Comrie, the Jets only have one more player to sign before camp and that is Josh Morrissey. He is still unsigned and last we heard is that the player wants to stay and the team wants him to stay, but Morrissey wants a bridge contract and the Jets want a team-friendly long-term deal. If Morrissey is not signed by camp, it is because they have a philosophical difference.
