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.
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.
After sitting as a healthy scratch for six straight games, Brown returned Monday in a 2-1 loss to St. Louis. He received 13:41 of ice time.
With Riley Stillman out with an upper-body injury, Brown slid into the third defensive pairing with Keith Yandle. Brown is pointless in his last 10 games and has only eight points in 56 contests this season, but he's provided 77 hits and 53 blocked shots, which could be useful in certain spot-start situations in daily or deep formats. That said, Brown is likely to be relegated back to the press box once Stillman returns, so there's probably nothing to see here from a fantasy perspective.
Brown picked up a helper in Monday's 5-3 win over Toronto.
After scoring only six points through his first 76 games in the NHL, Brown has started to produce in the offensive zone. Over his last seven games, Brown has scored one goal and tallied four points despite working on the bottom defensive pairing.
Brown notched an assist and two PIM in Monday's 5-4 win over the Wild.
Brown set up Aleksander Barkov's second-period tally. In his last four games, Brown has a goal and two assists. He's at just seven points, 57 hits and 47 blocked shots in 43 appearances this season -- the blueliner is more of a defensive presence than a scoring threat.
Brown scored a goal on four shots, dished four hits and blocked a pair of shots in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
The defenseman hadn't found the scoresheet in his last 16 games entering Sunday. He's at just five points, 39 shots on goal, 56 hits and 44 blocked shots through 40 appearances this season. Brown's limited role on the third pairing makes him a non-factor in most fantasy formats.
Brown skated a season-high 20:26 in a 6-1 loss to the Lightning on Monday.
With Aaron Ekblad exiting with an undisclosed injury in the second period, Brown was skating on the first paring with MacKenzie Weegar for large portions of the third. It was only the second career game skating over 20 minutes for Brown, who recorded 22:14 in time on ice during a loss on March 28 of last season. If Ekblad remains out this weekend Brown could continue skating with Weegar, but he is not much of an offensive threat with only four points in 31 games this season.
Brown threw three shots on goal and added a hit in Sunday's 5-1 blowout of the Sharks.
After scoring his second goal of the season in Saturday's contest, Brown was looking for more. His three shots on goal matched a career-high from March 10 of last season. The 25-year-old has two goals, four points and 32 hits in 24 games.
Brown collected his third point of the season with a helper in a 5-2 win over the Flyers on Tuesday.
The point is Brown's first in eight games, but surpasses his total of two points he scored in 37 games with the Panthers last season. Brown has averaged a measly 12:38 in ice time over his 18 games, as he has been stapled to the third line. With head coach Joel Quenneville heavily relying on his top four defenders, Brown is second to last in ice time among defenders who have played 18 games.
Brown scored a goal and added two PIM in Thursday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Flames.
It's been a slow start to the year for Brown, who has just two points in nine games. That matches his total offensive output from last year, but he's also averaging 1:11 less than he did in his rookie year (13:18 in 2018-19, 12:07 this season). Brown has also provided 11 PIM and 13 hits this year.
Brown only logged 13 minutes of ice time during Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning.
The Panthers are going to give most of their ice time to their top-four defenders, so Brown and MacKenzie Weegar are going to see minimal action on the bottom pair. Brown registered two hits and a block in the loss.
Brown picked up his first career assist during a 7-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday.
It was actually his first assist all season long -- including 22 games with Springfield of the AHL. Brown also registered two shots, four hits and a blocked shot during Saturday's loss.
Brown threw four hits during a 3-2 loss to the Senators on Sunday.
Standing at 6-foot-5, Brown is using his size to make an impact at the NHL level. Through 20 games this season -- his first in the NHL -- Brown is averaging 2.1 hits per game, tying him with Mark Pysyk and Ian McCoshen for first among Panthers defenders.
Brown recorded six hits during a 3-0 loss to the Stars on Tuesday.
Brown now has 21 hits through his 10 games with the Cats this season. He has yet to collect any points with only one shot on goal during his first NHL season.
Brown is now listed on the Panthers' active roster, per the NHL's official media site.
The Panthers will send Bogdan Kiselevich to AHL Springfield in a roster shuffle following the All-Star break. Since Florida has such long odds of clinching a playoff berth, expect this team to make a concerted effort to give as many of its prospects as possible a look. Brown's next game will be his fourth at the top level, and he's still seeking that elusive first point.
The Panthers loaned Brown to AHL Springfield on Tuesday.
Brown was one of three young players loaned to Springfield as the Panthers look to give all the opportunity to play regularly during the NHL All-Star break. It's expected the defenseman will rejoin Florida in advance of its next contest Feb. 1 versus the Predators. Brown has appeared in just three games for the parent club this season, totaling no points, six hits and five penalty minutes while averaging 11:57 of ice time per contest.
Brown will make his NHL debut Friday evening against the Maple Leafs, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Drafted by the Panthers in the sixth round (152nd overall) of 2016's selection show, Brown has crafted seven goals and 31 helpers in his professional hockey career comprised of stints with AHL Portland and Springfield. Listed at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, the Panthers probably won't ask Brown to do too much other than play a simple game and limit mistakes from the back line.
Brown was recalled from AHL Springfield on Thursday.
Brown has brought size and a physical element to the AHL's Thunderbirds, adding 34 PIM to his total of three goals through 19 games. Florida added him to the NHL roster after news broke that MacKenzie Weegar (concussion) would require a stint on injured reserve.
Brown was placed on waivers by the Panthers on Thursday, NHL Network's Elliotte Friedman reports.
Brown has yet to appear in an NHL game, and he'll have to show he's healthy at the AHL level before possibly getting a chance to join the big club.
