Red Wings Recall Brian Lashoff and Tomas Nosek
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Saturday recalled defenseman Brian Lashoff and forward Tomas Nosek from the Grand Rapids Griffins.
Lashoff, an alternate captain, has recorded three points (1-2 - 3) and eight penalty minutes in 18 games with the Griffins this season. The 6-foot-3, 221-pound blueliner is coming off a 2015-16 season in which he posted a career-best 15 assists.
In his eighth year as a professional, the 26-year-old has skated in 286 regular season games with the Griffins since 2008-09, compiling 61 points (14-47 - 61) and 141 PIM. A 2013 Calder Cup champion with Grand Rapids, Lashoff has 12 points (3-9 - 12) in 51 postseason games, making him one of five players in franchise history to play in 50 or more playoff contests.
Lashoff became the 126th Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL when he made his debut with the Red Wings on Jan. 21, 2013 at Columbus. In total, he has skated in 117 regular season games with the Wings over parts of three seasons (2012-15) and banked 13 points (2-11 - 13) and 57 PIM while also appearing in eight Stanley Cup Playoff contests.
A native of Albany, N.Y., Lashoff earned a gold medal representing Team USA at the 2010 World Junior Championships.
Nosek, 24, has skated in 11 games with the Griffins this season, tallying 10 points (2-8 - 10) and four PIM. He is currently riding a four-game point streak (2-5 - 7) and three-game assist streak.
In his third season as a Griffin, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound winger has played in 136 games in Grand Rapids since 2014 and accounted for 74 points (28-46 - 74), a plus-43 rating and 68 PIM. Nosek's plus-43 career rating currently ties for 10th in franchise history. Appearing in 21 Calder Cup Playoff contests, Nosek has added eight points (3-5 - 8) and 10 PIM.
Originally signed by Detroit in June 2014, Nosek became the 152nd Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL when he debuted with the Red Wings on Dec. 26, 2015 at Nashville. Nosek has played six games with the Wings in his career and has recorded two PIM.
Prior to coming to North America, Nosek played three seasons with his hometown club - HC Pardubice of the Czech ExtraLiga. From 2011-14, he appeared in 129 games, posting 62 points (24-38 - 62) and 58 PIM and helped Pardubice win the 2011-12 league championship.
Nosek captained the Czech Republic at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship and picked up one assist in six games.
