The Detroit Red Wings have acquired goaltender Tom McCollum from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft.

McCollum returns to the Red Wings after spending one season in Calgary’s system, spending time with the AHL’s Stockton Heat and Charlotte Checkers and the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder.

The 27-year-old posted a 12-2-1 record in 18 combined games with Stockton and Charlotte, helping the Checkers reach the post-season with a 2.10 goals-against average and .926 save percentage and one shutout. McCollum went 2-2 in five playoff games, posting a 2.87 goals-against and .910 save percentage and one shutout in five post-season games.

The Cambria, N.Y., native was selected in the first round (30th overall) by Detroit in the 2008 NHL Draft.
