The Edmonton Oilers are bringing back veteran forward Connor Brown.

According to a report from radio host Jason Gregor, Connor Brown will be coming back to Edmonton on a relatively affordable 1 year deal. That deal will carry an average annual value and salary cap hit of just $1 million per season, no word yet on if it contains any performance bonuses like Brown's previous deal with the Oilers.

Brown appeared in 71 regular season games for the Oilers and wasn't a huge factor, contributing just 4 goals and 8 assists for a total of 12 points in the regular season. Brown however would rise to the occasion in a rather unexpected manner during the Stanley Cup Final, becoming a significant impact player for the Oilers in that series.

If this deal had been announced during the regular season I think you would have heard a negative, or at least mixed, response from the Oilers faithful in Edmonton. That being said, after Brown's heroics during the Stanley Cup Final I suspect that this deal will be viewed favorably by those very same fans.
