Brown returns to Beast for first full season

Brampton, Ontario – The Brampton Beast announced the team has re-signed forward
Jeff Brown for the 2015-16 season.

The Beast are the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League and the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Brown, a Toronto native, will continue his career as a ‘Hometown Kid’ after making the jump to pro hockey with the Beast last February. Fresh from wrapping up his senior campaign with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues (CIS), the young forward joined the Beast mid-season, and looked like anything but a rookie after notching five points in his first five games with the team. Overall, in 21 games with the Beast, Brown tallied 10 points (4g-6a) and added 18 penalty minutes.

Prior to turning pro, the 6’1", 200-pound winger spent four years playing Canadian Interuniversity Sport Hockey for the Varsity Blues, scoring at a clip of over a point-per-game with 86 points (40g-46a) in 83 total contests. Brown truly found his groove with the Blues in his final season, where he notched 31 points (13g-18a) in 27 games.

During his junior career, Brown spent two-and-a-half seasons with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League before being traded to the Windsor Spitfires in his final year of eligibility. During his 182 game OHL career, Brown scored 109 points (51g-58a) to go along with 263 penalty minutes.
