Playing career

Brown was drafted in the second round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres. After finishing the 1994–95 WHL season with the Moose Jaw Warriors, he debuted with the Sabres on May 3, 1995 against the New Jersey Devils and scored a goal and an assist.

Brown returned to the WHL for 1995–96 and was traded from Moose Jaw to the Prince Albert Raiders before finishing out the season with Buffalo.

By 1997–98, Brown became a full-time player for the Sabres, usually on the third line.

In March 2004, Brown was traded to the San Jose Sharks in a three-way trade that saw Buffalo acquire Jeff Jillson from Boston while San Jose also received Brad Boyes. Brown played only 12 games for San Jose, however, and spent the NHL lockout season of 2004-2005 in the ECHL with the San Diego Gulls.

On July 2, 2004, Brown signed a four-year deal with the Chicago Blackhawks, only to be bought out after only one NHL season.

Brown signed with San Jose as an unrestricted free agent in July 2006. The two-year deal was worth just $1.4 million, with Brown stating that he signed for such a relatively low salary because he had already received money from Chicago's buy-out.

On July 17, 2008, Brown signed with the Kloten Flyers where he played for one season. For the 2009–10 season he was transferred to the EHC Biel.

Personal life

Brown has a wife, Ami. The couple had a daughter who died in late 2006 of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.[1] They have three sons, Gage, Garrett, and Griffin.

He is a Christian.
