During his career, Brown was considered to be in the upper echelon of NHL defencemen. He was selected to play in the 1992 NHL All-Star Game and still holds many offensive records for the St. Louis Blues.
Brown will perhaps best be remembered for his contributions to the Vancouver Canucks' 1994 playoff run, where they came within one game of winning the Stanley Cup. Brown recorded fifteen points during the Canucks run to the final, which they eventually lost to the New York Rangers. Brown recorded two goals in game six of that series, forcing a seventh game.
Brown, who played parts of 13 seasons in the NHL, suited up for six different franchises. The Quebec Nordiques, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Washington Capitals.
Brown was a threat from the blue line for the St. Louis Blues, and in the 1992–93 season, scored 25 goals and added 53 assists for a career high 78 points.
Brown was forced to retire from professional hockey due to lingering effects from a concussion.
He is married to Laina and they have 3 children together, Jenna-Rose, Logan and Caden.
