Wings sign Lashoff, Raedeke, cut Deck, Ondrej

Yesterday, Ken Holland said that deals with forward Brent Raedeke and defenseman Brian Lashoff were imminent. Today, they're complete. Both 18-year-old undrafted free agents were signed to three-year entry-level contracts.

They're both with their junior teams and will be for at least this season. These deals are about three years down the road, not this year.

Here's the Red Wings' press release ...

Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland announced today that the club has signed forward Brent Raedeke and defenseman Brian Lashoff to three-year entry level deals. In keeping with team policy, additional terms of each contract were not disclosed. Both players recently attended the Red Wings’ prospect camp in Traverse City on amateur tryouts.

Raedeke, an 18 year old forward from Regina, SK, spent last season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League. He finished the season with 15 goals and 16 assists for 31 points in 72 games. Lashoff, an 18 year old defenseman from Albany, NY, skated last season for the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League. In 50 games, he scored five goals and added 15 assists for 20 points.

The Red Wings also announced the release of two players from their training camp roster, defensemen Kyle Deck and Martin Ondrej. Deck was in camp on an amateur tryout while Ondrej was in on a professional tryout. With the cuts, Detroit’s current training camp roster stands at 50.
