Red Wings sign Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175M deal

The Detroit Red Wings have signed defenseman Brian Lashoff to a

three-year, $2.175 million contract.

The team announced the move Monday.

Lashoff has a goal and two assists in 15 games this season, his

first in the NHL. The 22-year-old native of Albany, N.Y., has made

the most of his opportunities to fill in for banged-up defenseman

in Detroit.

The undrafted free agent played in 36 games during the NHL

lockout with the Grand Rapids Griffins after playing all of last

season with the Red Wings’ American Hockey League affiliate.
