Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Connie Brown
Centre Connie Brown spent parts of five seasons with the Detroit Red Wings in the 1930s and '40s. He was a fine playmaker and checker who was a top scorer in a number of senior leagues.

The native of Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Brown played junior in Ottawa with the St. Malachy's and the Rideaus. This was followed by time with the senior Rideaus and Senators. In 1936 he joined the senior Cornwall Flyers and led the Ottawa and District Senior League in scoring two straight years.

The creative forward dressed for a pair of games with the Detroit red Wings in 1938-39 but spent most his time setting up linemates on the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets. In 1939-40, he scored eight goals while forming a solid checking line with Cecil Dillon and Butch McDonald. During the next three years he was recalled occasionally by Detroit but spent most of his time as a key member of the Indianapolis Capitals in the AHL.

Brown played in four different senior leagues in the '40s and early '50s. Statistically his best season was 1948-49 when he scored 88 points in 63 games for the Valleyfield Braves of the Quebec Senior League. The veteran forward retired in 1952 after playing a year with the Hull Volants of the Eastern Canada Senior circuit.
