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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
