DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings have signed defenseman Brian Lashoff to a three-year, $2.175 million contract.

The team announced the move Monday.

Lashoff has a goal and two assists in 15 games this season, his first in the NHL. The 22-year-old native of Albany, N.Y., has made the most of his opportunities to fill in for banged-up defenseman in Detroit.

The undrafted free agent played in 36 games during the NHL lockout with the Grand Rapids Griffins after playing all of last season with the Red Wings' American Hockey League affiliate.
