Wings\' prospect has OHL rights traded
Tomas Tatar was the Red Wings' second round draft pick in June.

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Red Wings prospect Tomas Tatar had his Ontario Hockey League rights traded from Kitchener to the Plymouth Whalers.

Tatar, 18, was taken in the second round of June's NHL draft by the Red Wings. The Slovakian scored seven goals with eight assists in 48 games last season for HKM Zvolen. He was very impressive in the 2009 World Junior Championships, where he tied for fourth in the tournament with seven goals and four assists while leading Slovakia to a fourth-place finish.

Tatar was selected in the 2009 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft in June and is considered to be one of the more high-profile players taken in the draft. But it's not clear whether his Zvolen contract will prevent him from reporting.

“Tatar’s an obvious talent and we hope he reports,” said Plymouth coach Mike Vellucci on the Whalers' official team Web site.

Tatar has been invited to Slovakia's Olympic team tryout camp, along with former Red Wings Tomas Kopecky and Marian Hossa.

Ontario Hockey League training camps start later this month. The Whalers report to Compuware Arena on August 26.

Plymouth opens the 2009-10 season on September 17 in Windsor against the Spitfires.
