Brown broke a bone in his foot when blocking a shot during Monday's win over Winnipeg, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Brown isn't expected to be available for Ottawa's last four games of the season, but at this point there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for next year's training camp. He'll finish the campaign having picked up a single assist while racking up 30 PIM through 26 top-level appearances.
Brown (undisclosed) isn't expected to be available for the Senators' final four games of the season, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Brown has only managed one assist through 26 games this campaign, so this news will almost certainly go unnoticed in fantasy circles. The 27-year-old blueliner will likely continue to serve as a rotational, bottom-pairing option for Ottawa in 2021-22.
Brown registered an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks. Brown has struggled to get any offense going in 2020-21, as his assist on a Colin White goal was the former's first point in 22 outings. The 27-year-old Brown has added 61 hits, 34 blocked shots and 26 PIM in a part-time role. His role is too inconsistent to warrant attention in fantasy.
Brown still doesn't have a point through eight games and was scratched in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Edmonton. Brown was never going to produce many points, and given that he's a defense-first blueliner, he offers little to no value in any format with Ottawa giving up a league-worst 4.8 goals per game.
Brown agreed to terms on a two-year, $2.4 million contract with the Senators on Monday. Brown was acquired from the Panthers via trade Oct. 2 and has already put pen to paper on a new deal. The blueliner saw action in 56 games with the Panthers and should see plenty of minutes with Ottawa in 2020-21. The ceiling for the 25-year-old is likely in the 15-20 point range, so he is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value except in the deepest of formats.
