The Detroit Red Wings acquired a second-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft and forward Jesse Kiiskinen from the Nashville Predators on Tuesday in exchange for defenseman Andrew Gibson.

The Red Wings will hold a pair of picks (Nos. 47 and 53 overall) in the second round.

Kiiskinen, 18, recorded 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 36 games for the Pelicans in Finland's Liiga last season. He was selected by Nashville in the third round of the 2023 NHL Draft.

Gibson, 19, totaled 44 points (12 goals, 32 assists) in 68 games last season with Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League. Detroit selected him in the second round of last year's draft.
