The Red Wings acquired forward Kyle Calder in a three-team deal that saw forward Jason Williams leave Motown for the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night. The three-way trade also included the Philadelphia Flyers obtaining defenseman Lasse Kukkonen from Chicago.

The Flyers sent Calder to Chicago for a 2007 third-round draft pick and Kukkonen before the Blackhawks then sent Calder to Detroit for Williams.

"We know Kyle very well as we played against him several times when he was in our division as a Blackhawk," Wings general manager Ken Holland said. "I also saw him compete for Team Canada at the 2006 World Championships when I was the general manager. Kyle is a gritty, competitive player who goes to the hard areas of the ice and

makes us harder to play against."

Calder was a big disappointment in his first season with the Flyers, scoring nine goals and 12 assists in 59 games. But the Red Wings receive a very talented young forward in Calder, who has the speed to keep up with Detroit's quick group of forwards.

Calder had 26 goals and 33 assists in 79 regular-season games for the Blackhawks last season, leading the team in goals, assists, points and game-winning goals.

Kukkonen has five goals and 14 points in 54 games for the Blackhawks this season. He was second on the team in blocked shots with 98. Over parts of two seasons with Chicago, Kukkonen has five goals and 10 assists for 15 points in 64 regular season games.

Williams had 11 goals and 15 assists in 58 games with the Red Wings this season, and was a part-time player in Detroit's quest for the Stanley Cup in 2002.

For his career, he has 49 goals and 67 assists in 233 games, but he's slumped this season, particularly after a mammoth collision with Edmonton's Raffi Torres on Nov. 8. The hit sent Williams to the hospital. Since then, Williams has been limited to eight goals and 10 assists in 43 games.
