By @StefanKubus – 

Steve Yzerman has brought one of his former draft picks to Detroit.

The Red Wings announced Wednesday that the team has acquired forward Adam Erne in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Erne, 24, was a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2013. He has skated in 114 NHL games and has amassed 13 goals and 27 points primarily in a depth role.

After posting seven points in a combined 49 games in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, Erne skated in 65 contests this past season with the Bolts and posted 20 points and a plus-10 rating while averaging just 10:33 of ice time per game.
