The Red Wings have their defenceman and he isn’t named Phaneuf.
The New Jersey Devils have traded defenceman Marek Zidlicky to the Detroit Red Wings for a conditional third-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft. Should the Red Wings advance to the Stanley Cup Final, the third-round pick will become a second-rounder.
In 63 games with the Devils this season, Zidlicky has scored four goals and 19 assists.
The 38-year-old is currently on a one-year deal with a cap hit of $4 million.
