Mike Brown has signed a two-year contract extension to remain with the San Jose Sharks. Without the deal, Brown would have become an unrestricted free agency on July 1.
The Sharks acquired Brown from the Edmonton Oilers during the 2013-14 season for a fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL draft. Since playing for the Sharks, he has two goals and three assists over 48 games and a -10 rating. Brown averaged only 7:22 of ice time per game.
In addition, Brown had 75 penalty minutes which included eight fighting majors. He had one goal, one assist, and 26 penalty minutes over the course of six playoff games this post season.
Brown’s agent, Neil Abbott, stated in an email to CSN Bay Area that “Mike is very happy to be returning to the Sharks.”
The extension for Brown is somewhat questionable. He didn’t produce very many points and actually had a 46.1 percent Corsi rating meaning that the Sharks saw more shots against with him on the ice than for.
Brown has also played for the Anaheim Ducks, the Vancouver Canucks and the Toronto Maple Leafs throughout his NHL career. He has a total of 17 goals and 14 assists in 337 regular season games, with 666 penalty minutes.
