Former Minnesota Duluth forward J.T. Brown has signed with Tampa Bay. The deal was announced Thursday. This comes as a tough shot to Minnesota Wild fans, as Brown was at the 2011 Development Camp and was a prospect that Chuck Fletcher had his eye on.
The move didn't get much publicity with Zucker signing, but this is a big move for Tampa. Brown is a feisty forward that can play physical hockey while chipping in on the scoresheet. J.T. Brown will make his Lightning debut tonight when Tampa hosts Winnipeg.
