Please recall last week when former Pittsburgh Penguins forward Mike Comrie(notes), 30, announced his NHL career is on hold until his injured hip is properly healed. "I will return to the NHL when I am healthy and able to play at the level I have come to expect of myself," said the free agent, through the NHLPA.
Turns out there's another reason to hang at home for a bit: Comrie's wife, actress and singer Hilary Duff, is pregnant with the couple's first child. And nothing says "injury rehab" like "no, honey, I said I wanted Chunky Monkey not Cherry Garcia. Back to the Safeway!"
Congrats to them!
