The New Jersey Devils have traded defenseman Marek Zidlicky to the Detroit Red Wings, reports Ken Campbell of The Hockey News.

The Devils will receive a 2016 conditional third-round draft pick in return and will also receive a 2015 fifth-round pick if the Red Wings reach the Eastern Conference final this season, according to Campbell. If Detroit reaches the Stanley Cup final, instead of an additional fifth-round pick the 2016 third-round pick would become a second-rounder.

The NHL trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET on Monday.
