Adam Comrie (July 31, 1990 – August 7, 2020) was a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. Comrie was selected by the Florida Panthers in the 3rd round (80th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Comrie played major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Saginaw Spirit and the Guelph Storm.

On April 13, 2010, the Florida Panthers signed Comrie to a three-year entry-level contract.[1] Comrie made his professional debut in the American Hockey League with the Rochester Americans during the 2010–11 season.

On July 10, 2013, Comrie was signed to a one-year two-way contract with Worcester's NHL affiliate, the San Jose Sharks.[2] He never appeared with the Sharks in the 2013–14 season, posting 19 points in 56 games with Worcester.

On October 6, 2014, as an un-signed free agent over the summer, Comrie signed to return to the ECHL with the Reading Royals on a one-year deal.[3] He split the season between the Royals and affiliate club, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL, producing 18 points in 40 games from the blueline.

On October 10, 2015, Comrie secured a one-year AHL contract with the Phantoms and was reassigned to Royals to begin the 2015–16 season.[4] He was again shuffled between the ECHL and AHL, posting a respectable 15 points in 32 games with Lehigh Valley.

As a free agent on July 26, 2016, Comrie agreed to a one-year deal with the Syracuse Crunch.[5] Comrie remained with the Crunch for the majority of the 2016–17 season, spending a brief stint in the ECHL with the Kalamazoo Wings. In adding a veteran presence, he matched a career best with 19 points in 55 games with the Crunch.

Comrie left Syracuse as a free agent and returned to the Reading Royals for the 2017–18 season.[6] On November 4, 2017, he returned on loan to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and appeared in two games before he was released back to the ECHL.[7]

After 8 professional seasons in North America, Comrie opted to embark on a European career, agreeing to a one-year deal with Austrian club, EC KAC of the EBEL, on July 16, 2018.[8]

Death[edit | edit source]

Comrie died on August 7, 2020, in a motorcycle accident in the U.S. state of Virginia.[9] He was 30.
