The Panthers traded Brown to the Senators in exchange for a 2020 fourth-round pick Friday.

Brown played in 56 games last season for Florida, registering three goals, five helpers and 48 shots while averaging 13:25 of ice time. The Senators will have to negotiate a new deal with Brown, as he is set to become a restricted free agent Oct. 9. With his new club, the blueliner should compete for a regular roster spot, though he is far from a lock to be in the lineup every game.
