DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have signed free agent Pete Stauber, a senior left wing from Lake Superior State University, to a multi-year contract, General Manager Jim Devellano announced Thursday.
Stauber, 24, a native of Duluth, Minn., was voted the best defensive forward in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for the 1989-90 season by a vote of the league coaches.
An honorable mention All-CCHA selection, Stauber had 25 goals and 31 assists for 56 points for the Lakers in 46 games last season. A criminal justice major, Stauber was selected as the league's only unanimous choice on the CCHA All-Academic Team for 1990.
His brother, Robb, a Hobey Baker Award as college hockey's oustanding player while at the University of Minnesota, is a goaltender for the Los Angeles Kings.
'In trying to build up the depth of the left wing position in our organization, we feel Pete has a good chance to become an NHL player,' Devellano said.
