Organizational Comments: "The fact that he could skate as well as he did - I thought it would be doing very light skating things, Man, he attacked it. He attacked the skating part. He's got something you can't teach and that's size. He's all about that, being 6-foot-5. Really impressed with his foot speed for his size. Usually a lot bigger guys, they might take a longer to get up to speed with their skating. This is very exciting for September that his shoulder is going to be healed." Wings Goaltending Coach Jim Bedard
What GRC says: Fall 2013: Sought after by several NHL teams, Coreau left college early to turn pro in the Wings system. He will battle Thomas McCollum for the backup role in Grand Rapids, but will likely see most of his playing time in Toledo where he can play regularly.
Role: Starting Netminder
