Legends of Hockey
Quote:
Adam Brown was a reliable goal scorer who could stand his ground in front of the net and win battles for the puck along the boards. He played nearly 400 games for three different clubs in the 1940s and '50s and was a solid minor pro competitor. Brown was a solid defensive player for nearly five years in Chicago before playing 33 games for the Boston Bruins in 1951-52.
Greatest Hockey Legends

Born in Johnstone, Scotland but raised in Canada, Adam Brown was dubbed in hockey circles as "The Flying Scotsman." But hard hitting Hall of Fame defenseman Bill Gadsby always remembered Brown for the night he sent a Frenchman flying.

Here's the story, as told in Stan Fischler's Hockey Encyclopedia:"Brown hit Montreal's little Norm Dussault about one-third of the way in from the boards. 'Dussaults stick flew into the crowd,' Gadsby said. 'So did one of his gloves. And the other glove flew about 30 feet down the ice. The best thing about it was the way Brown stood over him with his chest out, looking like Tarzan, and Dussault lying flat on the ice.'"

Adam Brown “made the Red Wings immediately due to his superb skating and unwillingness to back down from rough play”.

I was playing on a Detroit Red Wings' line with Billy Taylor and Adam Brown (You probably don't remember Adam Brown. He's dead now, but he was a good hockey player and a real hustler).
