DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have signed Northern Michigan goalie Jared Coreau to a three-year entry level contract, and they also recalled defenceman Brian Lashoff from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.
The team announced the moves Wednesday. The 21-year-old Coreau started all 38 games for Northern Michigan this season and finished with a 2.70 goals against average and a .919 save percentage.
Lashoff has appeared in 30 games for the Red Wings this season. He's played 37 games for Grand Rapids in 2012-13.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
