The Senators have acquired Connor Brown, Nikita Zaitsev and Michael Carcone from the Maple Leafs for Cody Ceci, Ben Harpur, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick.
Brown has not missed a game in the last three seasons but his offensive production has dropped as he moved down the Maple Leafs depth chart. Brown was a prolific scorer in the OHL and moving to a team with a lot of young wingers will allow Brown to play an expended role and likely return to 20 goals for the first time since 2017.
The Maple Leafs have sent Connor Brown to Toronto (AHL).
Brown, 22, had one goal and five assists (six points) in seven games during his call-up. He heads back to the Marlies, where he has 24 points (9G / 15A) in 28 games.
The Maple Leafs have recalled Connor Brown from Toronto (AHL).
