Lashoff has seen his share of time in both the NHL and the AHL, though he spent all of last season with the Grand Rapids Griffins. He recorded a career-best 15 assists in 74 games with the Griffins. Lately acting more as a guy who will get called up when a defenseman on the NHL roster goes down, he can produce and be a reliable body on the ice when called upon. Paired mostly with fellow defenseman Xavier Ouellet for a good majority of the season, the two acted as the Griffins’ top defensive pairing in 2015-2016.
#RedWings officially announce deals w/ Sheahan (2 yrs, $2.075 cap hit) and Brian Lashoff (1 yr, 2 way, $650K, $250K). Both RFAs after deals.
