Observations:

 

March 2014 - Brown has been traded, along with Rostislav Klesla, to the Capitals for Martin Erat and John Mitchell. Brown is on pace for a 25-goal, 55-point, 110-PIM and 200+ shots in this his second AHL season. He is close to NHL-ready and will push for a spot in the fall. Dobber

 

October 2013 - After a strong rookie-pro season in the AHL during 2012-2013 and a good training camp this season, Brown started the current campaign in Phoenix. Playing on the fourth line averaging about six minutes a game, Brown was scoreless with seventeen penalty minutes after three games. After the Coyotes took a couple of losses, Brown was re-assigned to Portland on Oct. 9th. In Portland, Brown will definitely play more minutes than when he was with Phoenix, where he can continue to work on his power forward game. Keith Duggan

 

May 2013 - Brown burst onto the professional scene with 29 goals in 68 games as a rookie in the AHL. He eclipsed his combined goal total from his last two years of college hockey by eight goals, which is very encouraging from a power forward in the making. He was called up for five games with the Coyotes, and generally impressed in limited duties, though he must work on his stickhandling. Although he had no points, he averaged a hit and a shot in around seven and a half minutes per game. Austin Wallace

 

February 2012 – Brown plays an aggressive, physical style and has good skills. His game has yet to translate into offensive production at Michigan, however, scoring 13, nine and 11 so far in his first three seasons. Rich Dillon

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

 

Brown is a project, and many power forwards are late bloomers. But his results as a pro are very encouraging.
