Red Wings Sign Goalie Prospect Petr Mrazek

The Detroit Red Wings are looking for a long-term solution at goaltender, and they may have found it. Highly-touted prospect Petr Mrazek was signed to a three-year entry level deal and he will begin his pro career next year. Mrazek was Detroit 5th round selection in the 2010 entry-level draft, and has been a solid performer with a 50-26-2-3 record, a 2.84 goals-against average, and .916 save percentage with the OHL's Ottawa 67's:

Mrazek, 19, is expected to begin his pro career next season, either with the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL) or the Toledo Walleye (ECHL).

Not the largest goaltender, standing 6’0 and weighing 184lbs. He possesses a great deal of athleticism and does not give up on shots. Mrazek has been touted as a great competitor, who also has great vision, which makes up for his lack of size.

It will take some time for him to get to Detroit, but he looks like a solid future prospect.
