San Jose, CA–After the conclusion of the Sharks vs. Red Wings game, San Jose’s General Manager Doug Wilson made a deal with the Edmonton Oilers. In that deal, the Sharks were able to trade their 2014 4th round pick in exchange for forward Mike Brown.
This trade that Doug Wilson made was considered to be a depth move for the organization given the fact the latest Shark player, Adam Burish after going thru successful back surgery to repair a damaged disc will be out for sometime, thus put on injured reserve. Right now it is too soon to say where Brown would be inserted in the lineup.
Newcomer Mike Brown has suited up 289 times in the National Hockey League with Vancouver, Anaheim, Toronto and Edmonton. He also recored 26 points which includes 15 goals and 11 assists. In addition, Brown has logged a total of 591 penalty minutes in his NHL career. Brown was originally selected by the Canucks in the 2004 NHL draft in the fifth round at 159th overall.
Brown is scheduled to meet up with the team in Boston as they continue their road trip against the Bruins.
According to Doug Wilson, he mentioned that Mike Brown brings his speed game to the organization and indicated that Brown fits the needs of how the team wants to play.
