If the Pittsburgh Penguins want Mike Comrie to suit up for them again during the 2010-11 season, it will only happen between March and April 2011.
That’s because the center (and main squeeze of Hillary Duff, as I imagine you surely know by this point) finally underwent surgery on his hip today after originally suffering from that issue on October 9th.
Comrie signed a one-year, $500K contract with Pittsburgh this off-season, a deal that seemed like it would benefit the Penguins more than anyone else. The prevailing wisdom was that this was a high-profile audition for the once-touted prospect to show what he could do with some talented linemates.
Instead, Comrie struggled with production (zero goals and five assists in 16 games) and injuries (he missed the past 15 games with the hip injury). It’s been a rough year for the 30-year-old forward and who knows if he’ll appear again during this season, but we’ll keep you updated if he manages to do so.
