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.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
— Nineteen-year-old Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin after scoring a goal in his NHL debut
