Brown signed a professional tryout agreement with the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

Brown is likely just a placeholder with Columbus missing five forwards due to the World Cup of Hockey. The winger is 39 years old and recorded a meager five points in 58 contests last season; the veteran's main fantasy value came from his 90 PIM and 120 hits, but outside of those categories, his contributions are nearly nil.
