Wings Agree to Terms with Coreau

July 9, 2015 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Grand Rapids Griffins News Release

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Thursday agreed to terms with goaltender Jared Coreau on a new one-year contract.

Coreau, 23, enjoyed a breakthrough season during 2014-15, posting a 16-8-1 record in 25 games with the Griffins, along with a 2.20 goals against average, a 0.927 save percentage and three shutouts. Earning the first start of his sophomore campaign on Nov. 29 at Adirondack, Coreau started his AHL season with a six-game winning streak, tying a franchise record previously set by Petr Mrazek in 2012-13 and Tom McCollum in 2013-14.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound netminder later strung together a seven-game winning streak from Jan. 24-Feb. 18 and, within that span, became the second Griffin ever to post back-to-back road shutouts (Jan. 29-30). Coreau was selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Feb. 1 and rode his consecutive shutouts to a franchise-record shutout streak of 160:06 from Jan. 24-Feb. 6.

A native of Perth, Ontario, Coreau also appeared in eight games with the ECHL's Toledo Walleye last season and turned out a 3.01 GAA, a 0.897 save percentage and a 5-2-0 record. In his first professional tour in 2013-14, Coreau registered a 4.03 GAA and a 1-12-6 record in 20 games with the Walleye and a 4.39 GAA and a 0-4-0 record in five games with the Griffins.

Prior to turning pro, Coreau spent three seasons with Northern Michigan University, where he posted a 15-19-4 record, a 2.70 GAA, a 0.919 save percentage and one shutout after starting in all 38 games during his junior year.
