Grand Rapids Griffins Sign Filip Larsson To An Amateur Tryout

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins on Tuesday signed goaltender Filip Larsson to an amateur tryout. The Detroit Red Wings on Monday agreed to terms with Larsson on a three-year entry-level contract that will begin with the 2019-20 season.

Larsson, 20, recently finished his freshman campaign at the University of Denver where he was named to the NCHC All-Rookie Team and a finalist for the NCHC Goalie of the Year after posting a 13-6-3 record, a 1.95 goals against average, a 0.932 save percentage and four shutouts in 22 appearances. He logged back-to-back clean sheets in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament to backstop the Pioneers to the Frozen Four. Larsson ranked third among NCAA goaltenders in save percentage and tied for ninth in GAA.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
