GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday signed defenseman Brian Lashoff to a two-year contract extension.

Lashoff, 28, has tallied 11 points (0-11-11), a plus-eight rating and 25 penalty minutes in 44 games with the Griffins this season. The 6-foot-3, 221-pound blueliner has appeared in 444 regular season games with Grand Rapids - the second-most in franchise history - since debuting with the club during the 2008-09 campaign and has totaled 95 points (21-74-95), a plus-24 rating and 219 PIM. One of only three players to be a part of both the 2017 and 2013 Calder Cup championships, Lashoff has recorded 19 points (5-14-19), a plus-one rating and 34 PIM in 73 Calder Cup Playoff contests, which also places second in the club's record book.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Detroit, Lashoff has played in 123 career games with the Red Wings since 2012-13, picking up 13 points (2-11-13) and 57 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.

A native of Albany, N.Y., Lashoff helped the United States win the gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship after notching two assists in seven games.

The Griffins return to Van Andel Arena on Friday to host the Rockford IceHogs at 7 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.
