Sharks add Mike Brown from Edmonton

This trade's a bit of a puzzler to me, per the Edmonton Oilers...

The Edmonton Oilers have traded fourth-line winger Mike Brown to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a 4th round pick in 2014.

Brown was acquired by the Oilers from the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 4, 2013 for a 4th round pick.

The forward played in 27 games in 2012-13 scoring one goal and adding 53 penalty minutes.

He has played in eight games this season with no points and 19 penalty minutes.

And San Jose Sharks:

San Jose Sharks (@sanjosesharks) Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that he club has acquired forward Mike Brown from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a fourth round section in the 2014 NHL Draft.

"Mike plays a speed game and fits the 'Fast, Hard and Supportive' mantra that our team wants to play with," said Wilson. "He is a player with tremendous character, knows the Western Conference well and brings a tough, physical ingredient to our line-up."

Brown has played in 289 NHL games with Vancouver, Anaheim, Toronto and Edmonton, posting 16 points (15 goals, 11 assists) and 591 penalty minutes.

The five-foot-eleven, 202-pound right wing was originally selected by Vancouver in the fifth round (159th overall) in the 2004 NHL Draft.

The Sharks also announced that defenseman Dan Boyle has been placed on injured reserve.

With Burish and Torres sidelined the Sharks needed to add NHL level grit and a player who can get under the opponents skin.
Calling up Pelach every time they faced a gritty opponent wasn’t working.

Plus the Oil need to clear space for Jordin Tootoo, obviously.
