Leafs send Brown to Oilers; Frattin gets spot
The Toronto Maple Leafs traded winger Mike Brown to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick in 2014, the Leafs announced Monday.
The pick becomes a third-rounder if Edmonton makes the playoffs this season, a source told ESPN.com.
The Leafs needed to open up a roster spot with the return of Matt Frattin from injury.
Brown, 27, adds grit to an Oilers lineup that has been lacking it up front. The rugged forward had 70 penalty minutes in 12 games for Toronto this season, including five fighting majors. In 254 games with Vancouver, Anaheim and Toronto, he has 14 goals, 11 assists and 519 penalty minutes.
