DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced that 19-year-old goaltender Petr Mrazek has been signed to a three-year entry-level contract. As per club policy, no further details regarding this deal will be disclosed.
As a member of the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s, Mrazek has registered a 2.84 G.A.A. and a 0.916 SV% to go along with a 50-26-2-3 record in 90 career appearances since being chosen by the club in the first round (30th overall) of the 2009 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft.
