Comrie's Development to Continue on Road

Sean Comrie
  Sean Comrie hopes a stay on the West Coast will eventually land him in the Wheat City.

  The Brandon Wheat Kings' second round pick in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft will move from Edmonton to play at the Delta Hockey Academy in Vancouver this coming season.

  "We're on the ice training every day so I think it'll help me a lot," said Comrie on Thursday, "The coaches are really great there, same with trainers they have there so I think I'll improve a lot this year."

  The 5-foot-11, 161 pound Comrie, who's a distant relative to Winnipeg Jets' prospect Eric Comrie, is one of eight prospect defencemen held over for the start of the Wheat Kings' main camp on Friday (see main camp roster posted below).

  As a 15-year old, he's not eligible to play full-time in the WHL until next season.

  Comrie had 11 goals and 22 points in 30 games with Edmonton CAC Bantams last season and thinks of himself as an offensive defenceman.

  "I think I'm a good skater and a good puck-moving defenceman and can jump into the rush if I have an opportunity to do so," said Comrie.

  Brandon's rookie camp concluded on Thursday with a pair of scrimmages.

  James McIsaac scored three times to lead Team Gold to a 7-3 win over Team White in the evening session while the morning scrimmage saw Markus Sekundiak have the hat-trick in Team Gold's 8-2 victory over Team White.

  The main camp schedule Friday includes eacn of the two teams practicing in the morning with a scrimmage to be held at 6:30 p.m. at Westman Communications Group Place.
