It seems like a random move...but I don't think that Comrie is quitting hockey. Why would he quit when he is leading the Cincinnati Cyclones with 6 points in 4 games?

I see one logical explanation ; San Antonio Rampage recalled basically all the players from their two affiliates (Rio Grande CHL and Cincinnati ECHL) this week, except Comrie. Comrie was probably pissed by the situation and asked to be released. I guess that he'll keep on playing with the Cyclones but he is now free to sign with the 29 other AHL teams.

I think a similar situation happened with JD Watt last year. He asked to be released from his ELC because he wasn't getting enough playing time.

Also, the Panther are close to the 50 contract limit. They are currently at 49 (counting Comrie).
