Edmonton Oilers re-sign Connor Brown to one-year contract

By The Canadian Press on July 1, 2024.

EDMONTON – The Edmonton Oilers have re-signed forward Connor Brown to a one-year contract worth US$1 million.

The 30-year-old had four goals and eight assists in 71 regular-season games for the Oilers, but shone in the post-season.

Brown had two goals and four assists in 19 playoff games and led the team in short-handed points with three.

He scored short-handed in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final against the Florida Panthers, and became the third player in NHL history to record short-handed points in back-to-back Stanley Cup games.

The six-foot, 185-pound forward was a key cog in Edmonton’s stingy penalty-killing unit that allowed just four power-play goals for a 94.3 per cent success rate.

Brown signed as a free agent with Edmonton in July 2023.

He has a career 94 goals and 134 assists in 519 games with Toronto, Ottawa, Washington and Edmonton.
