Sharks acquire Mike Brown from Oilers
Forward brought in for muscle
10/21/13 - By Mike Lee -

Sharks GM Doug Wilson responded to some of the head hunting that his team has been fending off, by acquiring Mike Brown from the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. Brown was swapped for a 4th round selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, and immediately provides the Sharks with some muscle to deal with the rash of aggressive play on his star players.

Vancouver drafted Brown in the 5th round of the NHL Entry Draft2004, making his NHL debut for the Canucks in 2007. He has also played for Anaheim, Toronto and Edmonton. In 289 career NHL games, he has scored 15 goals, and added 11 assists, while racking up 591 penalty minutes.

He appeared in 13 playoff games for the Ducks in 2009, recording a pair of assists.

"Mike plays a speed game and fits the 'Fast, Hard and Supportive' mantra that our team wants to play with," said Wilson. "He is a player with tremendous character, knows the Western Conference well and brings a tough, physical ingredient to our line-up."

Brown will be expected to patrol against shenanigans like Max Laparriere's hit on Dan Boyle last week, which left Boyle with a concussion. The Sharks also announced that Boyle was placed on the injured reserve due to this head injury he sustained when he hit the boards after Lapierre's hit.
