Goalie Eric Comrie clears waivers, sent to Amerks by Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres on Monday assigned goalie Eric Comrie to the Rochester Americans after he cleared waivers.

Comrie, 28, last played in the AHL one year ago, when he started three games for the Amerks during a conditioning assignment.

His arrival creates a logjam in Rochester’s net. The Amerks have two established AHL: goalies: Dustin Tokarski and Devin Cooley.

The Sabres are spending a lot of money on their netminders in Rochester. Comrie is in the second season of a two-year, $3.6 million contract. Tokarski ($450,000) and Cooley ($400,000) each have high two-way contracts, according to

Comrie enjoyed an impressive preseason, forcing the Sabres to keep three goalies again. But he has endured a rough regular season, compiling a 1-5-0 record with a 4.01 goals-against average and an .863 save percentage in seven games. He earned his only win Oct. 21, his season debut.

He hasn’t played since Dec. 5. He last dressed for a contest Dec. 16.

The Sabres, who had Monday off, used Comrie’s roster spot to activate winger Zemgus Girgensons from injured reserve.
