Christopher James Brown (born February 3, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey center. He is currently playing with the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL). Brown was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the second round (36th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Brown played junior hockey with the U.S. National Team Development Program from which he then accepted a scholarship to play college hockey with the University of Michigan Wolverines of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA). In his first season with the Wolverines, he was selected to the 2009–10 CCHA All-Rookie Team.
On the eve of the 2013–14 NHL trade deadline, Brown was dealt by the Coyotes along with Rostislav Klesla and a fourth-round pick in 2015 NHL Entry Draft to the Washington Capitals in exchange for Martin Erat and John Mitchell on March 4, 2014. Brown scored his first NHL goal with the Capitals on March 22, 2014, against Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks.
Brown was dealt once again on the eve of the 2015–16 trade deadline. He was traded by the Capitals to the New York Rangers in exchange for fellow American Ryan Bourque. On April 20, 2016, Jensen was recalled by the New York Rangers from the team's AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack.
