Mike Brown Traded to San Jose Sharks

Mike Brown has been traded by the Edmonton Oilers to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in 2014 according to the Edmonton Journal.  The veteran winger, who by the way has one of the best mustaches in the league, was traded by the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Oilers in March of 2013. He has played 35 games with Edmonton, notching a point and 72 penalty minutes, since joining the squad last season.

Prior to the Maple Leafs, Brown spent time with the Anaheim Ducks who received him in a trade with the Vancouver Canucks in 2009.  The Canucks drafted Brown in the fifth round of the 2004 NHL entry draft.  
Over his NHL regular season career, started in 2007-08 with Vancouver, Brown has amassed 591 penalty minutes and 26 points.  His physical play has made him an asset to each team he has joined during his pro career.  

As quoted in the Edmonton Journal, Brown seems to have enjoyed being a part of the Oilers, but is excited to join a Cup-contending team on the West Coast:
“You never want to leave, but I certainly can’t complain about going to a team that is as competitive as San Jose.”
