GM and Head Coach Justin Falk is excited to have Comeau join the Flyers. "Aidan is coming off a successful season with his hometown Anaheim Jr. Ducks. Through the conversations with Aidan, his coaching staff and his parents, it was clear Aidan's passion for the game and competing. We look forward to Aidan developing his game further at the Junior A hockey level."
“I chose the Flyers because my coach this year helped influence me and saw Winkler as a good fit for me and they had a lot of success as a team last year.” Comeau explained why he chose the Flyers. “I’m excited to learn from former NHLers. They obviously have a lot of experience in the sport and know what it takes to get to the next level.”
