Red Wings Trade Kindl to Panthers

The Detroit Red Wings traded defenseman Jakub Kindl to the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Detroit will retain 15 percent of Kindl’s salary and receive a sixth round draft pick in 2017.

Kindl, the Red Wings’ first-round draft pick (19th overall) in 2005, has bounced between Detroit and the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins this season.

In 273 career games with the Red Wings, Kindl had 16 goals and 52 assists for 68 points.

The move clears roughly $2 million from the Red Wings’ salary cap over the next two seasons.
