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.
BEST OF MAXIM
I'm still attempting to recover from the announcement this morning that the Oilers dealt a 4th (or perhaps a 3rd round pick instead) to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Mike Brown. It's not that Brown's a bad chap. He plays hard every game; he hits and he fights. He's a decent 4th line forward and he'll be popular with fans in Edmonton.
The problem with the deal...
The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed defenseman Korbinian Holzer to a two-year contract extension.
The deal Tuesday keeps Holzer under contract with the NHL club through 2014-15 season. Financial details weren't immediately available.
The 25-year-old Holzer has appeared in 16 games with Toronto this season. He has two goals, 19 penalty minutes and is tied for third on the team...

McKenzie adds that the 20-year old Nicholls, who was a 2010, 7th round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs, signed a standard three-year entry level deal, which has an annual cap hit of...
Four games on the schedule tonight - NJD at TOR; TBL at PIT; ANA at PHX and NSH at LAK. For me the games to watch are in Toronto and Los Angeles.
This is a huge week for the Maple Leafs as they face New Jersey, Ottawa, Boston and Pittsburgh. Not only do they have the opportunity to create some separation between them and the best-of-the-rest and continue to solidify themselves...
One of the big surprises this season is that Mark Fraser of the Toronto Maple Leafs leads the NHL in +/- rating with a +15 rating. It's a bit of a surprise that Fraser is not in the AHL and has a regular NHL job. He is a defenceman who played only four games outside the AHL last season.
In fact before this year, Fraser had 98 NHL games played over the course of four seasons...
Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Mike Komisarek addressed a report out of St. Louis this weekend that suggested that he would welcome a trade out of Toronto.
Andy Strickland, a St. Louis-based reporter, tweeted on Saturday, "Mike Komisarek gave #Leafs a list of 12 teams he'd accept a trade to but I'm told he'd pretty much accept a trade anywhere...
The Toronto Maple Leafs will need to take advantage of a March schedule littered with home games to stay in the running for a playoff spot.
Their task will be a difficult, as this week they face a harrowing schedule with four teams currently residing the top eight of the Eastern Conference.
On Monday, the New Jersey Devils visit the Air Canada Center trailing Toronto in the...
The Toronto Maple Leafs have extended their surge as their offense has continued to improve. The opposite has been true for the Ottawa Senators, who have seen the goals continue to dry up during a three-game losing streak.
The Maple Leafs go for their third straight win overall and second in as many home games against the Senators this season Wednesday night.
Toronto (14-9-0) has...
The Toronto Maple Leafs had the weekend to rest after an overtime victory that featured a breakout performance by one of their young stars.
The oldest member of the New Jersey Devils remains out, and they still haven't won since his injury.
The Devils look to avoid their first five-game losing streak in more than two years when they visit Toronto on Monday night.
This is the...
Yikes. This photo was found on Gongshow Hockey Gear’s Facebook Page and presumably came from Tye McGinn himself. The Philadelphia Flyers rookie fought Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown on February 25th and clearly got the worst of it. McGinn knocked Brown early during the fight, but once Brown got back up, it was all over for McGinn. His jersey was ripped and his...
The Toronto Maple Leafs rallied after playing uninspiring for the first forty minutes with three third period goals to defeat the New Jersey Devils 4-2 at the Air Canada Center.
Nazem Kadri, Jay McClement, Clarke MacArthur and Phil Kessel scored for Toronto, who improve to 14-9-0 with the victory and tie the Ottawa Senators for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 28 points...
