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.
