Brown (ankle) scored twice Sunday in his return from a two-month layoff for the AHL Toronto Marlies. Brown is talented young forward who put in a great rookie season in the AHL in 2014-15, finishing as the league's leading rookie scorer with 21 goals, 40 assists and 61 points in 76 games. He has also jumped from 145 pounds on his draft day in 2012 to 180-plus pounds today which makes him a potentially more durable winger in today's NHL game. Brown has second-line upside if his development continues, so deep keeper leagues should consider stashing him now, especially if you can wait a couple years for his arrival.
Brown (ankle) returned to practise Tuesday with the AHL Toronto Marlies for the first time since suffering a cracked bone in his ankle in late October, reports the Toronto Star. He is likely two weeks from competitive action. It's likely that Brown, who led the AHL in rookie scoring last season, could eventually team up with William Nylander when he returns from his concussion. It's a duo that will make the Marlies a must-watch AHL team.
Connor Brown was reassigned to the AHL Toronto Marlies, reports the Toronto Sun.
Connor Brown had a goal and two assists in Toronto's (AHL) 4-1 win over Charlotte on Wednesday.
