Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

June 2013 - Brown's first full pro season was highlighted with a broken collarbone which forced him to miss a large chunk of games. Brown started the season with six goals and 17 points in his first 26 games. After missing a couple months from the broken collarbone, Brown returned to the lineup producing a disappointing four goals and 11 points in 25 games. However, Brown finished the playoffs with four goals and nine points in 18 games while generally earning high praise for his high work ethic and offensive abilities playing on the third line. Due to Brown's abrasive playing style, he'll need to work hard to increase his strength to avoid further injuries down the road. Look for Brown to play the majority of the season in the American Hockey League for 2013-14. - Randy Buschmann

March 2013 - Brown broke his collarbone in December and it couldn't have happened at a worse time...Was probably a lock for the Lightning, but instead was healing...Since passed on the depth chart by Killorn and perhaps even Panik...Still potential for numbers at the NHL level, but the Lightning seem to be set in their top six. His value takes a hit. - Dobber Hockey

March, 2012 – Quickness is the name of Brown’s game, as he possesses extremely quick hands and feet. The Minnesota native went to the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2010, and helped them win the National Championship, as well as being named to the WCHA All-Rookie team. Brown, who plays bigger than his size, tallied 47 points in 29 games for the Bulldogs this season. He is the son of former Minnesota Vikings running back Ted Brown.
