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

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
