TRANSACTION: The rights to defenseman Brad Stuart have been traded to San Jose for a conditional pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) June 10, 2012
No word yet on what those conditions will be, but we'll update when we have them. It's been well-known since the trade deadline that Brad Stuart's family situation would draw him to California, where his wife and children live.
