Mike Comrie, who appeared in nearly 600 games over an 11-year NHL career, is under investigation from the Los Angeles Police Department after a woman claimed he repeatedly raped her at his residence, per TMZ.

Law enforcement sources tell us the woman claims she met up with Comrie at a bar Saturday night and went back to his West L.A. condo. She claims he raped her multiple times.

The woman says she almost immediately went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center nearby, and a rape kit was administered.  

Sources connected with Comrie say he’s known the woman for a long time and acknowledges he had sex with her, but insists she gave full consent. The sources also say the encounter was a 3-way and the other woman has not filed any complaint.

Comrie, 36, last played in 2010-11, appearing in 21 games for the Penguins. The son of noted entrepreneur Bill Comrie — the CEO of The Brick furniture chain, and a Chicago Cubs minority owner — Mike was also known for his marriage to actress and singer Hilary Duff.

The two divorced in 2015, ending their five-year union.
