Brian Lashoff has done everything Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings have asked of him since he was pressed into duty in an injury-depleted defensive corps. Monday, the Wings rewarded the 22-year-old blue liner.
Wings sign Defenseman Brian Lashoff to a 3-year extension.

Lashoff has three points (1 G, 2 A) and is a minus-3 in 15 games, but his impact has shown above the scoresheet. The Wings called up Lashoff as injuries took guys like Ian White, Brendan Smith and Carlo Colaiacovo out of the lineup.
There’s no word yet on the financials of Lashoff’s new deal. He was set to be a restricted free agent after this season; he’s earning a little more than $500K in 2013.

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...
Like Brian Lashoff? Well hopefully the answer was yes, because he's here to stay for a bit.
Lashoff received some security on Monday, when the Red Wings signed him to a three-year, $2.175 million extension. It's a one-way deal (NHL-salary only) all three years, with a salary-cap hit of $725,000.
“He's played 18-to-20 minutes a night and a lot of nights he’s...

On Monday, the Detroit Red Wings signed defenseman Brian Lashoff to a three-year one-way extension worth $725,000 per season. The 22-year-old would have become an unrestricted free agent in July....
DETROIT Everyone around the NHL knows about Detroit stars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg.
Soon everyone around the NHL will also know the name Damien Brunner.
From the second Brunner arrived on North American ice, he's managed to do what he did when he dominated the Swiss National League A score.
On Sunday, the first-year center was at his best, scoring two goals and...
Because a day cannot go by without a Detroit Red Wings player suffering an injury, forward Valtteri Filppula is questionable for Wednesday’s game in Los Angeles against the Kings.
Filppula did not practice Tuesday. Take it away, Helene St. James and Ansar Khan:
#RedWings F Valtteri Filppula not on ice. GM Ken Holland says Filppula is a little injured, day-to-day

I'm going to start an entry I wouldn't normally write with a set of announcements I normally wouldn't state:
1. I may or may not split up recaps and overnight reports from now on, depending on your feedback. I've done so for the Wings-Predators and now the Wings-Canucks games simply because there's so much going on during the weekends in terms of notes, quotes...
On Saturday afternoon, Red Wings fans were nervous...Or at least I was. The Wings were heading into a Saturday night tilt against Nashville in a must-must-win situation, having gone 0-3-and-2 over their past five games.
Saturday night, the Wings smoked Nashville 4-0, and we all felt a little better.
After the first period of today's game against Vancouver, Wings fans were...
Games like this, they just make me so happy. Early on it looked like it might be a long night with the Sedin twins playing nauseatingly great hockey, but Detroit took over in the second with, get this: our special teams. Not only did they score three with the man advantage, they didn’t give up any to a hot Vancouver power play. Awesome.
More after the jump:
Paul here for George as he waits for his laptop to be fixed. Maybe later today or tomorrow is the estimated time.

Late afternoon game today. VAN lead their Division (as usual), and had the day off yesterday. Luongo has been a freaking wall.
For DET, yesterday's game could not have gone better. The Wings took a 2-0 and didn't blow it, Jimmy pitched a shutout, DET tallied a PP marker, and nobody got hurt. Slump-buster or abberation?

The Detroit Red Wings will face off against the Vancouver Canucks this afternoon (5 PM, FSD/Sportsnet West/97.1 FM) minus their designated starter for the day. As Paul noted, the Wings recalled Tom McCollum and will start Jimmy Howard instead of Jonas Gustavsson due to a "sore groin," though Wings GM Ken Holland told the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness that the team&...
After a shaky first period, the Red Wings all but destroy the Vancouver Canucks in an 8 - 3 victory, leading into two days off.
Jimmy Howard got his confidence boosted early with a spectacular save on Maxim Lapierre’s early breakaway. Vancouver then opened the scoring at 5:45 on a wrist shot from Daniel Sedin. The Red...

Two of the hottest teams in the NHL will square off in LA on Wednesday. The average ticket for this game is $105.64, ten dollars more than the average Los Angeles Kings tickets price for a home game, $95.06. The Red Wings are one of the most prestigious franchises in the NHL, always drawing a big crowd, and expensive-ticket prices. According to TiqIQ, Detroit...
