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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
