Former Wolverine signs with Red Wings

Forward Josh Langfeld signed with the Detroit Red Wings earlier this month to little fanfare.

The former University of Michigan Wolverine has nine goals in 108 NHL games with Ottawa, San Jose and Boston and will attempt to make the Red Wings' roster in training camp.

Langfeld, 29, had 21 goals and 16 assists in 2001-02 for the Grand Rapids Griffins when they were affiliated with the Senators.

The Griffins are starting their fifth season as the Red Wings' AHL affiliate.

In Ann Arbor from 1997-2001, Langfeld tallied 65 goals and 64 assists in 168 games. His biggest goal came in the 1998 NCAA championship game when he scored 17:51 into overtime against Boston College to give the Wolverines theie second title in three years.
