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.
