Mike Comrie has decided to hang up his skates.
Comrie announced his decision two weeks after undergoing his third hip surgery in just five years. "My career has afforded me a series of phenomenal opportunities to play and become friends with some of the greatest people I have ever known and some of the greatest players who have ever played this game," Comrie said. He reached the 30-goal and 60-point marks twice in his career, but ultimately played in just 127 contests over his final three seasons. Comrie had 168 goals and 365 points in 589 games with the Edmonton Oilers, Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, New York Islanders, and Pittsburgh Penguins. He never won a Stanley Cup, but he did play for Ottawa in the 2007 Cup finals. He's also expecting his first child with his wife, Hilary Duff. Mon, Feb 13, 2012 01:25:00 PM

Mike Comrie has reportedly suffered a setback in his recovery from hip surgery.

"In wanting to return to play after surgery, I pushed myself too early and that has not helped my recovery," he said in a statement. "I will return to the NHL when I am healthy and able to play at the level I have come to expect of myself." Comrie suited up in just 21 games with Pittsburgh last year and he underwent the second hip surgery of his career in December. He is currently an unrestricted free agent, but he will need to get healthy before another NHL club offers him a new deal.

Penguin GM Ray Shero has confirmed that unrestricted free agent Mike Comrie won't be re-signed.

The 30-year-old Comrie had a horrible injury-plagued season registering only six points in 21 games. There is some talk he may retire after hip problems bothered him throughout the 2010-11 campaign. We can think of worse things than to spend time on the road with his actress wife Hillary Duff.

Mike Comrie was a healthy scratch for the Penguins on Tuesday night.

Pittsburgh got Mark Letestu back from injury in the contest, so Comrie was scratched to make room for him. Comrie has seen limited ice time since returning to the lineup from hip surgery and he appears to be a depth player at this time. Tough guy Eric Godard and defenseman Deryk Engelland joined him in the press box.

Mike Comrie has been used sparingly since returning to Pittsburgh's lineup from hip surgery.

He logged just 8:07 of ice time in his first game back on Friday against New Jersey and he saw 10:19 of action on Sunday versus Florida. He has played the majority of his shifts on the fourth line with Mike Rupp and Arron Asham, but he has seen some power-play duty as well. It's unclear if his role will increase during the team's final stretch of games, but right now he shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

The Penguins believe that Mike Comrie could return to the ice sooner than initially expected from December hip surgery.
