Coreau has one more year of NCAA eligibility left, but has decided to forgo his senior season at NMU.
As first reported by The Mining Journal, Coreau had seven teams interested in him following the Wildcats first-round CCHA playoff series loss at Michigan.
Grand Rapids Griffins first-year head coach Jeff Blashill contacted NMU head coach Walt Kyle the Monday after the Wildcats season-ending loss to Michigan to enquire about Coreau.
The Griffins are the AHL affiliate of the Red Wings. According to the source inside the NMU hockey program, the 6-foot-4, 208-pound Coreau could see time not only with the Griffins, but the Wings as well.
