Goalie Dan Cloutier will try out with Red Wings - MLive.com

Veteran goaltender Dan Cloutier, out of hockey last season, will attend the Detroit Red Wings' training camp (Sept. 13-15) on a tryout.

Cloutier, 33, who contacted the club and asked for the tryout, hasn't played since appearing in nine games with the Los Angeles Kings in 2007-08. He has been bothered by a series of ailments, including a season-ending hip injury midway through 2006-07.

This doesn't mean Jimmy Howard's status as Chris Osgood's backup is in jeopardy. Cloutier is a long shot to earn a contract from the Red Wings.

A 10-year NHL veteran who also has played for the Rangers, Tampa Bay and Vancouver, Cloutier is best remembered -- by Detroit fans -- for letting in Nicklas Lidstrom's shot from center ice in Game 3 of the 2002 first-round playoff series against the Canucks.

The Red Wings, reeling after losing the first two games of the series at home, went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Cloutier has a career NHL record of 139-142-33, with a 2.77 goals-against average and .899 save percentage.
