Lightning Acquire Rights to Rolston

From the Minnesota Wild (press release):

Minnesota Wild President and General Manager Doug Risebrough tonight announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired a conditional draft pick in either the 2009 or 2010 NHL Entry Draft from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for forward Brian Rolston.

Update 11:07pm ET: From Michael Russo at his Star Tribune blog,

The trade is done. It’s for a conditional draft pick with three different conditions apparently depending on whether Rolston signs with Tampa Bay or not. The conditions will be spelled out to me in a little bit.

Update 11:16pm ET: You can see the conditions for the pick at Russo’s site. They’re a bit (shall we say) convoluted, in part dependent on approval of the earlier Malone signing in Tampa.
