Michigan State hockey alumnus Taro Hirose gets contract extension with Detroit Red Wings

Taro Hirose was dominant in his time at Michigan State, putting up 116 points in his three seasons in East Lansing.

Following his final year with Michigan State, he was awarded Big Ten Player of the Year honors, as well as being named a first team All-American, and a Hobey Baker Award finalist.

Hirose wasn’t drafted as a prospect before college, so he had free reigns to sign wherever he would like. Hirose landed with the Detroit Red Wings, where he has spent parts of the last three seasons.

Hirose will be around the Red Wings system a little longer, earning a one year contract extension.
