The Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning exchanged players and picks on Friday, one week before the 2012 NHL Draft takes place at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

The Predators acquired two second-round draft picks (37th and 50th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, a 2013 third-round selection and goaltender Sebastien Caron in exchange for goaltender Anders Lindback, forward Kyle Wilson and a 2012 seventh-round selection (202nd overall).

The Predators now have nine selections in next week's NHL Entry Draft.

In addition to the Lightning's two picks, and three picks of its own, the Predators previously acquired Toronto's third-round pick (66th overall), the Coyotes' fourth-round pick (118th overall), the Stars' sixth-round pick (164th overall) and the Rangers' sixth-round pick (179th overall).

Lindback was a seventh-round choice of the Predators (207th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Wilson, Minnesota's ninth-round selection (272nd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, was signed as a free agent prior to the 2011-12 season.
