Red Wings Recall Goalie Jared Coreau From Toledo

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled goaltender Jared Coreau from the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye.

Coreau, 22, signed with the Red Wings last summer after a three-year career with Northern Michigan University of the CCHA. In 76 games with the Wildcats from 2010-13, he compiled a 32-31-8 record, a 2.74 goals-against average, a 0.919 save percentage and two shutouts. A native of Perth, Ontario, Coreau has appeared in 19 games with Toledo as a first-year pro, posting a 1-12-5 record, a 4.10 goals-against average and a 0.873 save percentage. The 6-foot-5, 235-lb., netminder has also made five appearances for the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins with an 0-4 record, a 4.39 goals-against average and a 0.873 save percentage.

If healthy I would play Howie against Carolina and Monster against the Blues. 

Might be a Monster Groin with recalling Coreau.  Strange

I’ve forgotten that Coreau is 6’5”.  Dear Gord, what is our defense going to look like in about three or four years time (or sooner)?  That defense, if it pans out, is gonna be fuching huge.  And skilled because Sproul, Ouellet, Marchenko are as skilled as they come.  Skill and sense?  Better add a third “S” to that:  size.

Hmm, well, Gustavsson did start last night, he’s about due for a tweaked grown, huh?

Coreau’s numbers are awful!
The Wings I guess just need a warm body, because if they were serious they would bring up somebody (Mrzak or McCollum) from the Griffins.

yeah, this doesn’t seem like good news. Monster was good last night all in all. I was really hoping he was healthy going into the playoffs. It’s nice to have the option

vs Mrazek

2013-2014 2.07GAA 0.925 S%

Now, Mrazek has a much bigger sample size… but still.

Maybe they are also trying to boost his confidence?

Agree.  Probably to show him how far he’s got to go.  Maybe the Wings couldn’t do this “experiment” earlier in the season, but having secured a playoff spot, they can.

Whatever the reason, I hope Monster is okay and can return to the lineup soon.

His numbers are awful from Toledo, and the AHL moves so much faster than the ECHL. Like posted above, I have to wonder if the decision to call him up now (we’ve clinched, I doubt the organization cares a whole lot whether they win the next two) could be some incentive for the kid to boost his confidence, as well as possibly inspire some willingness in him to man up with some work ethic. A little bit of “work hard and this could be yours one day” can go a long way with some of the young guys who might be expecting things to just get handed to ‘em.

I think it’s because Detroit has clinched and very little movement can take place (they’re going to be a wild card no matter what) and they don’t want to disrupt the Griffins too much because they’re in 2nd in their conference right now and, while they aren’t likely to drop all the way to fifth, they could conceivably end up anywhere from first to fourth by the end of their season.

What’s the situation in Grand Rapids? Maybe Blashil would prefer he have his starting goalie helping him vs. being extra insurance with the Wings. I know its not his choice, but this sounds emergency situation at best.

I’m kind of amazed that two people actually believe that the Wings are thinking about anything except winning the next two games. The difference between finishing 7th and facing Pittsburgh or finishing 8th and facing Boston is significant.

Isn’t it possible for the wings to finish sixth? Aren’t they in a three way with Philly and Colum(short)bus?

No. It’s not possible.

I made the same mistake the other day because I forgot about the two separate Divisions in the East. So, as SK77 said, it isn’t possible. Seventh is the best the Wings can do.

However, with Philly’s loss last night, it is possible for the BJs to finish ahead of the Flyers and force them into the 7th or 8th spot. And I’d dearly love to see Boston’s first-round match-up be the idiot Flyers than either the BJs or the Wings.
