Oilers' Connor Brown: Signing with Edmonton
Brown (knee) signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Oilers on Saturday, per Darren Dreger of TSN.
Brown played just four games with Washington last season before tearing his ACL in October. The 29-year-old winger has some modest offensive upside, posting 35-plus points in each of his previous three seasons in Ottawa. If healthy, Brown should be in the mix for a middle-six role with Edmonton this year.... See More ... See Less

The 29-year-old winger will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has multiple 35-plus point seasons on his resume, but a knee injury ended his 2022-23 campaign with no points in just four games.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Connor Brown: Placed on LTIR
Brown (knee) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
This was simply a procedural move for the Capitals to free up cap space, as Brown is unlikely to play again prior to the playoffs. His first campaign with the Capitals will likely conclude with him posting a minus-3 rating, six hits and two shots on goal with no points in four games. He will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Connor Brown: Undergoes ACL surgery
Brown recently had surgery to repair a torn ACL and will likely miss the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports Tuesday.
Brown would have to be on the short end of his ACL recovery timeline in order to return this season, with the playoffs maybe a more likely scenario, assuming the team qualifies. The 28-year-old winger reached the 35-point mark in each of the three previous campaigns for the Senators but could perhaps finish this year without having secured a single point for the Capitals after being acquired via trade in the offseason....

Capitals' Connor Brown: Headed to injured list
Brown (lower body) was placed on the injured reserve list Wednesday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The 28-year-old was expected to help fill the void while Tom Wilson (knee) worked his way back into the lineup, but now Brown himself is expected to face a lengthy absence.

Capitals' Connor Brown: Tallies two points
Brown recorded a goal, an assist, three shots and a plus-2 rating during Wednesday's 3-1 preseason win over the Flyers.
Brown has had a solid showing in his first camp with the Capitals since being acquired from Ottawa over the summer. The 28-year-old winger is expected to help fill the offensive void while Tom Wilson (knee) gets back to full strength and is the current favorite to debut on Washington's top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov to start the season -- an assignment that would give his fantasy appeal a significant boost in any format....

Capitals' Connor Brown: Getting shot on top line
Head coach Peter Laviolette indicated that Brown would get the first look at the top line right wing spot during the upcoming training camp, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
With Tom Wilson (knee) set to miss multiple months to start the season, the top line right wing assignment could be Brown's for the taking if he shows well in camp. Laviolette seems keen on an open competition for the coveted spot alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, but should the 28-year-old Brown lock it down, his fantasy appeal would enjoy a significant boost. Managers should keep a close eye on updates from the Capitals during the preseason, but Brown is a viable sleeper pick at the moment.... See More ... See Less

He put up 10 goals, 29 assists and 121 shots in 64 contests, with nine points on the power play and another four while shorthanded. The 28-year-old should be a middle-six option with his new team, though he's versatile enough to occasionally fill on the top line as well.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Connor Brown: Will be shut down for year
Brown (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup for Ottawa's last three games of the season, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Senators' Connor Brown: Sidelined with nagging injury

Brown notched an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.
