Andrew Conrad "Andy" Brown (born February 15, 1944) is a retired Canadian ice hockey goaltender. His father, Adam also played hockey in the National Hockey League, as a left winger.[1]

Brown started his professional hockey career with the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League in 1972. He also played with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where in 1974 he would set the NHL single-season record for penalty minutes by a goaltender with 60 (the record has since been surpassed). He continued to play after his NHL days with the World Hockey Association's Indianapolis Racers.

On April 7, 1974, in a 6–3 loss to the Atlanta Flames, Brown became the final National Hockey League goaltender to play without a goalie mask, and continued to play without a mask through his World Hockey Association career. This earned him the nickname "Fearless".[1][2]
