Adam Erne was traded to the Detroit Red Wings by the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

The 24-year-old forward, a restricted free agent, had 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 65 regular-season games and no points in three Stanley Cup Playoff games. He was third on the Lightning with 159 hits.

Selected by Tampa Bay in the second round (No. 33) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Erne has 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) in 114 NHL games. Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman held that role with the Lightning when Erne was drafted.
