Mike Brown
Right Wing - SJS
GOALS: 0 | ASST: 0 | PTS: 0
SOG: 1 | +/-: 1
Brown, 28, was held without a point in eight games this season for the Oilers. He has 19 penalty minutes.

The 5-foot-11, 202-pound right wing was selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the fifth round (No. 159) of the 2004 NHL Draft. He has 15 goals, 11 assists and 591 penalty minutes in 289 games with Vancouver, Anaheim, Toronto and Edmonton.

"Mike plays a speed game and fits the fast, hard and supportive mantra that our team wants to play with," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. "He is a player with tremendous character, knows the Western Conference well and brings a tough, physical ingredient to our lineup."

San Jose improved to 8-0-1 Monday with a 1-0 shootout victory against the Detroit Red Wings.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
