Gladiators’ Brown Is ECHL Career PIM Leader

Gwinnett’s Cam Brown has become the ECHL career penalty minute leader with 2,258 penalty minutes in his 11 seasons in the league, beginning in 1991. Brown broke the record of Brian Goudie, who had 2,253 penalty minutes in 11 ECHL seasons with Hampton Roads, Pee Dee, Richmond and Florida from 1992-2003.

Brown is tied for the league lead with three game-winning goals while ranking fourth in goals with five and tied for 13th in scoring with eight points (5g-3a) in eight games.

Brown tied the record with a four-minute double-minor penalty for high sticking in a 6-1 win against Mississippi on Friday, and he broke the mark on Saturday after receiving a five-minute major for boarding in a 4-1 loss at Mississippi. Brown has played the past two seasons for Gwinnett after previously playing for Baton Rouge, Columbus (Ohio), and Erie.

The 35-year-old Brown has 658 career ECHL regular-season games, 20 shy of the record of 678 games held by Rod Taylor, who played from 1991-2003 with Hampton Roads, Peoria, Richmond, Roanoke, South Carolina and Toledo.
