A One-Year Contract For Goaltender Jared Coreau

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with goaltender Jared Coreau on a one-year contract. In accordance with club policy, additional details will not be disclosed.

Originally signed by Detroit as a free agent in April 2013 following a three-year collegiate career at Northern Michigan University, Coreau has split time in each of his professional seasons between the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye. After posting a combined 1-16-6 record between the two clubs as a first-year pro, Coreau rebounded with a strong season for the Griffins in 2014-15, sporting a 16-8-1 record with a 2.20 goals-against average and a 0.927 save percentage. Among goaltenders who played more than 1,400 minutes, Coreau ranked ninth in the league in goals-against average and tied for fourth in save percentage. The 23-year-old also tied with Petr Mrazek for the Griffins lead with three shutouts this season and made his professional postseason debut during Grand Rapids’ first-round Calder Cup playoff series against the Toronto Marlies. He was also named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week on Feb. 2 after posting back-to-back shutouts on the road, stopping all 66 shots he faced.

The 6-foot-5, 235-lb., netminder also posted a 5-2-0 record with a 3.01 goals-against average and a 0.897 save percentage in eight appearances with the Walleye this season. Prior to turning professional, Coreau appeared in 76 games with the Northern Michigan Wildcats from 2010-13, owning a 32-31-8 record, a 2.72 goals-against average, a 0.919 save percentage and two shutouts. The Perth, Ontario, native also spent a season with the USHL’s Lincoln Stars in 2009-10, posting a 3.62 goals-against average and a 0.882 save percentage.
