The Detroit Red Wings on Thursday re-signed goaltender Jordan Pearce to a two-year contract.
 
Pearce, 24, went 20-15-5 with a 2.89 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in 2010-11 with Detroit's American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins. He made 1,164 saves in 44 appearances and actually made 20 straight starts (12-6-2) when he seized the starting role down the stretch to almost lead the Griffins to the playoffs. The native of Alaska has yet to play a game in the NHL.
 
Pearce also appeared in eight contests with the ECHL's Toledo Walleye last season, going 3-5-0 with a 4.13 GAA and .883 save percentage. In 50 games with the Griffins over the last three years, Pearce is 21-18-5 with a 3.01 GAA and .904 save percentage.
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
