Nightmare on Helm Street:
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 playing against the other team’s best players,'' Holland said. “He's played on the penalty kill. He's rangy, he competes hard, he makes a good outlet pass.
“He’s well positioned. He makes mistakes, but that’s part of having young people. They make mistakes and they have to learn from it. We feel he has potential.''
I like this signing, he's been a solid #5-6 guy so far, though he's been playing as the #2-3 guy at times too. He'll grow into a good defensemen over time and the price is right.
Now this isn't the signing of a DRW rookie we were hoping to read ...

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.

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...
DETROIT -- There's a silver lining for the Detroit Red Wings despite their injury woes this season.
It's created an opportunity for a few of the young prospects to come up from the minors and get valuable NHL experience.
Two of those players, forwards Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson, were having tremendous success in the American Hockey League before being called up.
So here we sit with the Red Wings 19 games played which is normally right around the quarter mark of the season but with the lockout shortened year we’re just five games away from the halfway point.
Detroit sits 9-7-3 after two impressive wins at home against Nashville 4-0 and Vancouver 8-3 which in addition to the impressiveness were much needed confidence boosters before the...
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:

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...

It's only fitting that as the Detroit Red Wings gear up to take on the Los Angeles Kings this evening at the Staples Center in the City of Angels, talk earlier this week began about an NHL proposal to the NHLPA surrounding conference realignment and a new playoff format.
Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada was the first to...
Kyle Quincey with one of the stranger goals this season. Puck is comes off of the glove hand of Bernier, hits him in the back of the head and directs into the back of the net.
I can't pull a Malik and stick around for the end of the game, so feel free to use this post for post-game too.
George does need a new laptop and will be shopping early tomorrow for one, so hopefully...
After improbable back-to-back (convincing) wins over NSH (4-0) and VAN (8-3), DET are currently holding down the 8th spot in the West. The PP has finally found a pulse, Jimmy is on fire, and the Chinese Fire Drill in the "D" zone is becoming a rarity - - at least at JLA.
Of the Wings (9-7-3) 21 points, 15 were earned at home (7-4-1). DET are a meager 2-3-2 on the...
They say you should just throw the puck at the net, and this goal by Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is exactly why. His shot went of Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier’s glove, bounced straight up in the air, hit off his head/back and bounced it. Rob Scuderi tried to knock it out of the air but completely whiffed. Bernier had no idea where the puck was and...
from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo,
To Wings GM Ken Holland, there is a simple reason why players such as Brunner go undiscovered for so long: The NHL is the best men’s league in the world, and players become men at different ages. Some are men at 18. Most grow into men later – some much later, some in out-of-the-way places.
Brunner is listed at 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds...

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...
