The Nashville Predators have traded defenseman Alexander Sulzer to the Florida Panthers for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

The Predators will receive Florida's seventh-round pick in 2012 if Sulzer re-signs with the Panthers.

Sulzer has 1 goal and 4 points in 31 games this season for the Predators, and the 26-year-old defenseman is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. A third-round pick in the 2003 Entry Draft, Sulzer has bounced between Nashville and Milwaukee of the American Hockey League for the past two seasons.

Nashville also reportedly put forward Wade Belak on waivers and forward Steve Sullivan on injured reserve.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
