East Rutherford, NJ - The Stanley Cup Champion New Jersey Devils today signed free agent defenseman Sean Brown to a contract. The announcement was made by Devils' CEO/ President/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.



"Sean is a solid player with a great deal of experience for his age," said Lamoriello. "He adds an element of size to our roster, while giving us an additional physical presence on the blue line."



Brown, 26, appeared in 69 games with Boston in 2002-03, posting one goal and five assists for six points and 117 penalty minutes. He was acquired from Edmonton March 19, 2002, after spending four-plus seasons with the Oilers. The 6'3", 210 lb. defenseman has career totals of 13 goals and 29 assists for 42 points and 828 penalty minutes in 350 career NHL games.



Brown was Boston's second choice and 21st overall selection in the 1995 Entry Draft, but his rights were traded to Edmonton January 11, 1996. He made his professional debut by playing in three games with Phoenix (IHL) in 1994-95. Brown was born November 5, 1976 in Oshawa, Ont., and played his junior hockey with Belleville and Sarnia (OHL).
Good pick up. Lou Lamoriello knows how to scout and pick up quality players so he'll probably be a great fit for the Devils. He doesn't score much like Scotty Neidermayer but the Devils don't score much anyways.

I remember when he was on the Oilers and he lead Oiler defenceman in powerplay points, even when they ahd Hamrlik, Niinamaa, Poti -- weird huh? He can be surprising and this is good for the Devils to fill in Daneyko's spot. Good signing.

Good news for the Devils. They're keeping their team going, to continue to be a conteder over the next decade... and the one after that. This organization is truly committed to winning, and this signings shows it! Not that Sean Brown is going to tear up the league, but atleast they're doing something to help out the future of this team. Kudos to Lou.

Oh, help my Leafs!
