Defenseman Jeff Brown



Brown's stats:

- 8 50 Point Seasons
- 3 Seasons of 10 or Power Play Goals
- Tied for 2nd on the Blues in playoff scoring in 1993.
- 65 Points in 87 Career Playoff Games
- 8 30 Assist Seasons

Legends Of Hockey:

Quote:
Jeff Brown was a mobile defenceman who played over 700 games for six different clubs. He was a superior passer who liked to gamble by rushing with the puck or pinching in from the blueline.
He was one of their few positive stories in the late 1980s. Brown was a top point producer for the club and scored 13 power play goals in 1988-89.

The clever blueliner was one of many bodies moved when the Nordiques cleaned house at the start of the '90s. He joined the St. Louis Blues in 1989-90 and immediately upgraded their power play and transition game. In 1990-91.

Late in the 1993-94 season Brown was acquired by the Vancouver Canucks in time for their drive to the Stanley Cup finals. His mobility and experience helped the club come within one game of winning it all in a tough series against the New York Rangers. Brown retired with nearly 600 career points and the reputation of being one of the best power play specialists of his time.
St.Louis Post Dispatch March 24, 1991:

Quote:
The accepted line of thinking was the Blues lost their best defenseman of last season when an arbitrator awarded Scott Stevens to the New Jersey Devils.
Perhaps, perhaps not.

Some might suggest the Blues' top defenseman is still here and will be here for years. Some believe Jeff Brown has come that far.

''When Jeff came here he was certainly a skilled and talented offensive player,'' Blues coach undrafted

Really glad to have Brown on the team, like him to anchor my team's defense in terms of the offensive game.
