College Hockey:
Comrie to Return to Denver

— Denver junior Paul Comrie has decided to return to school this year, passing up an offer from Red Deer of the Western Hockey League, according to an article in the Denver Post.

The Post had earlier reported that Comrie would renounce his final two years of collegiate eligibility to play Canadian major junior hockey for Red Deer.

In Friday’s (Aug. 15) article, Comrie said, “I’m happy to be going back and having two years to develop rather than going for one year in a make-it-or- break-it season.”

Denver coach George Gwozdecky called Comrie’s choice “a very mature decision [and] the right decision. … There were a lot of people pushing him to play junior hockey in Canada, and there was a point where I really felt he wouldn’t be back. But we’re glad to have him back, no question.”
