The Calgary Flames have dealt goaltender Thomas McCollum to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Red Wings will give up a conditional seventh-round pick for the career minor leaguer. The Red Wings originally drafted McCollum in the first round of the 2008 Draft in the 30th slot so it's a homecoming of sorts for the netminder.

The Calgary Flames have inked Thomas McCollum to a two-year and two-way deal. He will head to AHL Stockton.

The 26-year-old netminder is a career minor leaguer with no NHL experience. He'll ding the Flames' cap at $612K if he comes up, but that's unlikely. He'll make $175K this season and $200K next season while down on the farm.

Thomas McCollum will attend Los Angeles Kings training camp on a professional tryout.

McCollum is a former first-round pick of the Detroit Red Wings in 2008. The 26-year-old put together a number of solid seasons in the minors, but was never able to stick with the Wings. "Obviously, I was hoping for a contract, but that didn't work out, so out of all the teams I talked to the Kings seemed most interested in me being at their camp," said McCollum. "They were very persistent and I looked at it and decided it was a really good fit." McCollum will battle Jeff Zatkoff and Peter Budaj for the backup job in Los Angeles.

Thomas McCollum made his second appearance of the season in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

He stopped all 17 shots he faced in relief after Petr Mrazek was pulled. "I was pretty busy," he said. "I could see a lot of the shots, so that makes it easier for me. I felt great out there." The 25-year-old netminder's grandfather passed away on Tuesday, so it's been a tough week for him.

Thomas McCollum stopped seven of eight shots in Sunday's 6-4 win over Arizona.

McCollum entered the game after the Wings pulled starter Petr Mrazek. Detroit was down 3-0 when the switch was made, but they responded by scoring six goals in the final two periods. The win was the first of McCollum's NHL career. The 25-year-old was Detroit's first round pick back in 2008. The Red Wings have won four games in a row, and six of their last seven.
