Most recently, Brooks was selected off waivers by Toronto on Feb. 16 and was placed back through the system a day later in an attempt to option him to the American Hockey League. Now, the Manitoba native is heading back to where he grew up and played three seasons of AAA-level hockey.
Through 29 career NHL games, the 5’11” forward has posted six goals, 11 points, 17 shots on goal, 22 hits, eight takeaways and five blocks.
Winnipeg will conclude its four-game homestand Saturday with an afternoon affair against the Edmonton Oilers, beginning at 3:00 pm CT.
