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.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
