Brown picked up his first career assist during a 7-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday. It was actually his first assist all season long -- including 22 games with Springfield of the AHL. Brown also registered two shots, four hits and a blocked shot during Saturday's loss.
Brown threw four hits during a 3-2 loss to the Senators on Sunday. Standing at 6-foot-5, Brown is using his size to make an impact at the NHL level. Through 20 games this season -- his first in the NHL -- Brown is averaging 2.1 hits per game, tying him with Mark Pysyk and Ian McCoshen for first among Panthers defenders.
Brown recorded six hits during a 3-0 loss to the Stars on Tuesday. Brown now has 21 hits through his 10 games with the Cats this season. He has yet to collect any points with only one shot on goal during his first NHL season.
Brown is now listed on the Panthers' active roster, per the NHL's official media site. The Panthers will send Bogdan Kiselevich to AHL Springfield in a roster shuffle following the All-Star break. Since Florida has such long odds of clinching a playoff berth, expect this team to make a concerted effort to give as many of its prospects as possible a look. Brown's next game will be his fourth at the top level, and he's still seeking that elusive first point.
Brown was recalled from AHL Springfield on Thursday. Brown has brought size and a physical element to the AHL's Thunderbirds, adding 34 PIM to his total of three goals through 19 games. Florida added him to the NHL roster after news broke that MacKenzie Weegar (concussion) would require a stint on injured reserve.
