DETROIT – The Red Wings have signed defenseman Dan Renouf on a two-year entry-level contract, beginning with the 2016-17 season. Renouf has also signed an amateur tryout with the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins, where he will report for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Renouf recently completed his junior season at the University of Maine, leading the team’s defensemen and tying for fifth overall with 15 points (6-9-15) in 38 games. The 21-year-old blueliner ranked among Maine’s leaders with six goals (T5th), nine assists (5th), 36 penalty minutes (7th) and two power-play goals (T4th). On Nov. 23, he was named the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week after notching two goals and two assists in a weekend series against Vermont. In three collegiate seasons, Renouf notched 38 points (10-28-38), a plus-14 rating and 72 penalty minutes in 111 games. The Pickering, Ontario, native was a Maine Scholar-Athlete Award winner after the 2014-15 campaign and was named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team as a freshman in 2013-14.

The 6-foot-3, 209-pound, defenseman spent two seasons with the Youngstown Phantoms in the United States Hockey League prior to his collegiate career, recording 43 points (11-32-43), a plus-35 rating and 136 penalty minutes in 115 games from 2011-13.
