The Detroit Red Wings have submitted an offer to free agent defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, True Hockey’s Andy Strickland reports.
Colaiacovo spent last season with the St. Louis Blues, tallying 19 points in 64 regular season games. While he has dealt with injuries throughout his career, he would bring a boost to the Red Wings’ blue line that needs a replacement not just for Nicklas Lidstrom, but for Brad Stuart as well.
Colaiacovo has become more and more sought after since Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild. He has also reportedly received offers from the New York Rangers, Carolina Hurricanes, Philadelphia Flyers, and Calgary Flames
