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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
