After the abysmal season that Jared Coreau had last season, both with the Toledo Walleye of the ECHL and with the Grand Rapids Griffins, a lot of Red Wings fans didn’t think he’d be in the prospect pipeline very much longer.

But Coreau is on the warpath to prove them all wrong.

This week, Coreau has been honored as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week, for the week ending on February 1st. The 6’5″, 230-pound prospect posted back-to-back shutouts for the Griffins, in a 38-save 6-0 win over the Iowa Wild on Thursday, and a 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Admirals on Friday, making 28 saves. The latter was good for his third shutout of the season.

Coreau’s current shutout streak of 140:32 is second in franchise history, the record being held by Marc Lamothe at 153:58. He’s having a standout year this season, currently sitting on a 9-6-1 record, an 8th-best in the league GAA with 2.07, and 6th-best save percentage at .930. These are unbelievable numbers for a netminder who just a season ago posted a 4.03 GAA and 1-12-6 record with the Walleye, and a 4.39 GAA and 0-4-0 record with the Griffins.

Coreau was an undrafted player out of Northern Michigan University, signed by the Red Wings to a 3-year entry level contract back in 2013. This year is his first real “full” stint in Grand Rapids.

With Coreau’s emergence as a viable starter in the AHL, and the current success of Petr Mrazek and Tom McCollum filling in for the Red Wings’ injured starters, Detroit has many goaltending options in the pipeline for the future.
