After healing from a broken jaw early in his tenure, he gradually established himself as a good, rushing-type defenseman. He was never a prolific scorer, but he managed to play a well-balanced game with effective coverage in his own zone. - Legends of Hockey
Quote:
A solid defensive defenseman who was mostly overlooked during his days with the Montreal Canadiens, Brian Engblom didn't enjoy the limelight until after he retired to become an active television analyst. Engblom incauspiciously began his career with the Habs during the 1976 season, playing six years in Montreal, and he got in on three Stanley Cup victories before his career swerved into the trade winds.- Who's Who in Hockey
Quote:
Being consistently good at dealing with 2-on-1's against you, can be a great source of pride for you as an individual, espacially if you have limited offensive skills. They don't show up on the score sheet, but the coach and your goalie will know. - Brian Engblom
Quote:
An outstanding defenseman for the Canadiens, Brian scored a power play goal in 1980-81. He had 4 assists in the 1980 playoffs.- Back of 1981-82 Hockey Card
