According to the Anaheim Ducks' official website, left winger Mike Brown has been signed to a two-year contract extension. Financial details about the deal were not disclosed because of a franchise policy.
But he was mainly an enforcer, easily leading the team with 2.1 penalty minutes per game.
Brown, 23, has spent much of his young pro hockey career in the minor leagues thus far. He played three seasons in the AHL, two in the CCHA and NAHL, and one in the ECHL.
This signing was smart for the Ducks. They needed a young fighter like Brown to step in and defend the aged scorers the team still relies on a little too much, even with talented youngsters Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and Bobby Ryan sharing the scoring load.
