Leafs trade Brown to Oilers for pick; prepare for Frattin and Lupul's return

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Mike Brown to the Edmonton Oilers for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

Brown, 27, played in 12 games for the Maple Leafs this season, collecting an assist and ranking third in the NHL with 70 penalty minutes.

The five-foot-11, 205-pound forward has been assessed five fighting majors this season and collected his 500th NHL penalty minute Feb. 25 at Philadelphia.

Brown missed eight games earlier this season with an upper-body injury.

In 254 games with Vancouver, Anaheim and Toronto, the native of Northbrook, Ill., has 14 goals, 11 assists and 519 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
