Brown mainly played on the fourth line for Anaheim serving as a solid source of energy and speed. He played with grit delivering 30 hits in 23 games and dropped the gloves on a few occasions as well. He wasn’t very effective offensively for the Ducks, but it’s difficult when playing limited minutes in Randy Carlyle‘s system. Brown averaged eight minutes and 46 seconds of ice time while with Anaheim. Carlyle has been known not to play his fourth line that much especially if his team is trailing in the third period of a contest.
Brown became an unrestricted free agent(UFA) this summer and signed a two-year deal with Minnesota worth $1.37 million. Another Anaheim UFA, Mike Liambas, also signed with the Wild. He signed a two-year deal worth $1.35 million.
Some other UFAs that Anaheim did not sign include Reto Berra, Kevin Bieksa, Jason Chimera, Derek Grant, Chris Kelly, and Antoine Vermette. Those players have yet to sign with another team. Jared Boll and Francois Beauchemin both decided to retire this summer.
