Rookie goaltender Jared Coreau has been assigned to the Toledo Walleye from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.

Coreau, 21, played three seasons at Northern Michigan University before signing a three-year entry-level contract with the Detroit Red Wings in April.

Coreau made his pro debut in Grand Rapids' 4-3 loss to Toronto on Saturday. Coreau had 22 saves on 26 shots that he faced.

The native of Perth, Ontario started in 38 games for Northern Michigan last season, posting a 15-19-4 record, and a 2.70 goals-against average.

Coreau, who is 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, joins fellow rookie Mac Carruth in Toledo. Carruth (6-3, 176 pounds) stopped all 32 shots he faced and posted a shutout in Toledo's 3-0 win in a preseason contest against Kalamazoo on Saturday.

The Walleye also released goaltenders Brooks Ostergard and Neil Conway today.
