Red Wings pull off pre-Draft trade

Trade alert!



While the Detroit Red Wings remain committed to using their 15th overall selection in the 2024 NHL Draft later this week, they've gotten ahead of the proceedings by making a pre-Draft trade.

They've traded Andrew Gibson to the Nashville Predators in exchange for a 2nd round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft (originally Tampa’s) and forward Jesse Kiiskinen:

Gibson was drafted by Detroit in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2023 NHL Draft.

"Gibson, 19 (2/13/05), established OHL career highs in games played (68), goals (12), assists (32) and points (44) with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in 2023-24, helping his team reach the second round of the postseason before falling to Saginaw. Gibson led the Greyhounds and was seventh among all OHL defensemen in plus-minus (+36); he also was second among team blueliners in goals and assists and was third in points. The 6-foot-3, 196-pound native of Windsor, Ont., added two assists in 11 playoff games and recorded nine multi-point contests during the regular season, headlined by a four-point effort on Sept. 29 vs. Flint (4a)."
