Mike Comrie

Full Name: Mike Comrie

Canadian professional ice hockey player Michael Comrie was born on September 11, 1980.

Comrie, whose father was also a hockey player, earned a scholarship to play ice hockey at the University of Michigan. Though his small stature made scouts wary (he is only 5-foot-9), he was selected by the Oilers in the third round of the draft in 1999. Since he did not come to agreement on a contract with the Oilers, he decided to join the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League instead. After a great run in junior hockey, the Oilers announced that Comrie signed with them on December 30, 2000.

After a series of trades to the Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders, Comrie returned to the Oilers in 2009 with a one year contract for $1.125 million.

Then, in 2010, he signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but spent much of the season sidelined with a hip injury.

Comrie wed singer-actress Hilary Duff on August 14, 2010.
