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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
