OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators have signed recently acquired defenceman Josh Brown to a two-year, US$2.4-million deal.
Brown, who could have become a restricted free agent this off-season, was traded to the Senators by the Florida Panthers for a fourth-round pick in this year’s NHL draft last week.
Brown, 26, had three goals and five assists in a career-high 56 games with the Panthers last season.
The native of London, Ont., has 10 points in 93 career NHL games with Florida and 27 points in 170 career American Hockey League games.
