DETROIT, Mich. - The Tampa Bay Lightning acquired veteran defenceman Mike Commodore from the Detroit Red Wings for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2013 on Monday.

In 471 career games with New Jersey, Calgary, Carolina, Ottawa, Columbus and Detroit, the Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native has 23 goals, 83 assists and 666 penalty minutes.

The 32-year-old won the Stanley Cup with Carolina in 2006 and has eight points (two goals, six assists) in 53 career playoff games.
