The Calgary Flames have claimed Forward Blake Comeau off waivers from the New York Islanders, GM Jay Feaster confirmed Friday. Comeau had a career high 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 77 games last season but has failed to register a single point in 16 games this season.


Blake Comeau is very familiar with Flames Head Coach Brent Sutter. Sutter was behind the bench for Team Canada for the World Juniors in Vancouver in 2006 when they won the Gold. Comeau knows what is expected from him and thanks to ““, I was able to get a few quotes.


“Having had Brent coach me before, I know the expectations he has and obviously he wants his players to work hard and be competitive.


“That’s something I feel like I have in my game and that I will be able to bring to the team.


GM Jay Feaster had a few things to say about Comeau and his style of play;


“Blake is a smart, committed, two-way hockey player who kills penalties, is responsible defensively and can score goals as well”…


Comeau will make his Flames debut tonight in St. Louis while wearing #10 on his jersey. Comeau was drafted 47th overall in the 2nd round of the 2004 NHL entry-draft. In 261 career games, Comeau has achieved 121 points.


You decide: Is Calgary a good fit for Comeau?

Will being close to family inspire Comeau to play better?

How many points will Comeau finish with by the end of the season?
