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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
