Rockets ink Comrie

It's official.

Defenceman Sean Comrie has signed a standard WHL players contract with the Kelowna Rockets.

The 19 year-old was acquired in a trade with the Brandon Wheat Kings earlier this month.

Comrie was playing at Denver University, but was enticed by leaving college with the Rockets hosting the 2020 Memorial Cup.

“We are excited to have Sean sign with us,” said Rockets President/General Manager Bruce Hamilton. “He will fit in well with the defencemen that we have returning. Sean was a high second round bantam pick, so obviously he has a real sound skill set. We look forward to having Sean join us this fall.”
