Defenseman Adam Comrie Suspended by ECHL for Two Games

Reading, PA – The Reading Royals, the ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, today announced that defenseman Adam Comrie has been suspended by the league for two games and fined an undisclosed amount as a result of supplemental discipline for spearing an opposing player off of the playing surface at the 15:08 mark of the third period of Wednesday’s 3-1 loss for the Royals to the Toledo Walleye in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal best-of-seven first round matchup.

“We understand the league’s ruling, but we’re disappointed with the league’s decision,” said Royals’ Head Coach Larry Courville. There will be no further comment from the team or Coach Courville.

Comrie will miss Game Five on Friday in Toledo and Game Six on Sunday in Reading in the ECQF series against the Walleye.

The Royals take on Toledo in Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals best-of-seven first round playoff series on Friday (April 22 @ 7:35 pm) at Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio. Friday’s game can be heard live on CBS SportsRadio 1240 AM and 98.5 FM in Reading, Pennsylvania, starting with the pre-game warm-up show presented by Highmark Blue Shield at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Friday’s game will also be televised locally in Berks County, Pennsylvania, on BCTV courtesy of Boscov’s Travel and Apple Vacations. Streaming audio is available free of charge on the Royals’ website (follow the ‘headset’ icon) and video streaming also free of charge through bctv.org; and streaming video is available on a pay-per-view basis through ECHL.TV.
