DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have claimed forward Drew Miller off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 25-year-old native of Dover, N.J., had no points and two penalty minutes with the Lightning in 14 games this season. A sixth-round draft pick for Anaheim in 2003, he has 15 points and 25 penalty minutes in 67 career NHL games.
