DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today acquired center Kyle Brodziak and a conditional draft pick from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for defenseman Mike Green. The conditional draft pick will either fall in the fourth round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft or the third round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Brodziak has not played for the Oilers this season and is currently on long-term injured reserve. The 35-year-old skated in 917 NHL games from 2005-19 over two stints with the Oilers, as well as the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues, totaling 296 points (129-167-296) and 462 penalty minutes. Brodziak also appeared in 173 American Hockey League games with the Edmonton Road Runners, Iowa Stars and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins from 2004-07, notching 119 points (42-77-119) and 134 penalty minutes. A native of St. Paul, Alberta, Brodziak was originally a seventh-round pick (214th overall) of Edmonton in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft and spent his major-junior career with the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors (1999-04), posting 185 points (81-104-185) in 273 games.

The Red Wings currently own a combined 17 selections over the next two NHL Entry Drafts, including this acquired pick which could fall in either 2020 or 2021. In the upcoming 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the Red Wings also own their own pick in every round except the fourth, in addition to Washington’s second-round pick and San Jose’s third-round pick. In 2021, Detroit has all seven of its original selections and a third-round pick from Vegas.
