COREAU COMES BACK

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Monday assigned goaltender Jared Coreau to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Recalled by the Red Wings last Thursday, Coreau has served as a backup during Detroit’s last two games – a 3-1 win at Columbus on Thursday and a 5-3 victory at Florida on Saturday.

Coreau ranks among the AHL’s elite goaltenders this season, tying for the league lead in save percentage (0.931) while placing second in wins (29), tied for second in shutouts (six) and third in goals against average (2.15). Coreau’s 29 wins also tie him for fifth on the team’s single-season list. The 6-foot-6 netminder has been on a hot streak in his last six games, showing a 6-0-0 record, a 0.99 GAA, a 0.967 save percentage and three shutouts.

A native of Perth, Ontario, Coreau recorded an 11-game winning streak from Nov. 18-Dec. 26, during which he contributed to Grand Rapids’ franchise-record 15-game winning streak. Coreau also earned league recognition as he was named the AHL’s Goaltender of the Month for December after posting a 9-2-0 record, a 1.92 GAA and a 0.938 save percentage.

In his three seasons in Grand Rapids, Coreau has nine shutouts, including six this season to tie a club record.

Coreau also played parts of two seasons for the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye (2013-15), showing a 6-16-6 record and a 3.75 GAA.

Over the course of his three-year professional career, Coreau owns a 51-36-9 record and a 2.69 GAA.

Prior to turning pro, Coreau played three seasons at Northern Michigan University where he compiled a 32-31-4 record and garnered multiple CCHA Goaltender of the Week honors (Jan. 7 and March 4, 2013).

The Griffins will conclude a season-high five-game roadtrip on Tuesday against San Antonio at 8 p.m. EDT.
