Mike Comrie: Pittsburgh Penguins' Newest Hire!

Hilary Duff will be soon be making the trek to Pennsylvania a lot more often!

Her husband, pro hockey player Mike Comrie, signed a one-year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins worth $500,000 (substantially less than the $1.25 million he earned last season with the Edmonton Oilers).

Why? Mike‘s agent Ritch Winter says that his client agreed to sign because he believed it would help the team. What a good guy!

“I think the biggest thing for me is that I’m excited to join a team that has some great players. Hopefully I can come in and complement them and be a guy that can help score and create some depth,” Mike shared. “I’m excited. it was definitely a hockey decision. There’s times in your career where you make a decision — I wanted to go to a great team and be a part of an organization like Pittsburgh and be able to compete for a Stanley Cup.”

Less than a month ago, Hilary, 22, and Mike, who turns 30 on Sept. 11, got married at a private residence in Santa Barbara, Calif.
