GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Thursday recalled defenseman Brian Lashoff from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Lashoff, 29, has recorded eight points (3-5-8) and 26 penalty minutes in 39 games for Grand Rapids this season. His plus-five rating leads all team defensemen while his three goals tie for second. A 6-foot-3, 215-pound blueliner, Lashoff has appeared in nine games with Detroit in 2019-20, showing one assist, a plus-one rating and six PIM while averaging 14:33 of ice time.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Detroit, Lashoff has played in 136 career contests with the Red Wings since 2012-13, picking up 15 points (2-13-15) and 65 PIM. He became the 126th Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL when he debuted with Detroit and netted his first goal in the same game on Jan. 21, 2013 at Columbus. Lashoff made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut in 2013 and has skated in eight postseason tilts.

The Albany, N.Y., native has suited up in 492 regular season games for Grand Rapids - the second-most in franchise history - since debuting with the club during the 2008-09 campaign and has tallied 106 points (25-81-106), a plus-26 rating and 253 PIM. One of only three players to be a part of both the 2017 and 2013 Calder Cup championships, Lashoff has produced 20 points (5-15-20), a plus-three rating and 34 PIM in 75 Calder Cup Playoff contests, which also places second in the club's record book.

The Griffins (26-22-3-4) are on a season-high four-game winning streak and will host the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m.

Single-game tickets are currently on sale. Fans can secure their full-season, select-season or group ticket packages by calling (616) 774-4585 ext. 2 or visit for more information.
