TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Mike Brown to the Edmonton Oilers for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft.
Brown played in 12 games for the Maple Leafs this season. He had one assist and ranked third in the NHL with 70 penalty minutes. Brown missed eight games earlier this season with an upper-body injury.
Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis said the draft pick can improve based on Edmonton's performance.
The 27-year-old Brown is from Northbrook, Ill. He has five fighting majors this season. In 254 games with Vancouver, Anaheim and Toronto, he has 14 goals, 11 assists and 519 penalty minutes.
