The Detroit Red Wings have traded defenseman Mike Commodore to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft.

The conditional pick requires that Commodore, who signed as a free agent with Detroit last July, must play 15 or more regular season games for the Lightning and the club must qualify for the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Commodore has played in only 17 games for the Red Wings this season, registering 2 assists.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
