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.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
