Brown made his professional debut with the AHL's Maine Mariners in the 1986–87 season. He also appeared in four NHL games with the Devils that same season. After six seasons with the Devils, Brown joined the Pittsburgh Penguins for the 1993–94 season. He then joined the Detroit Red Wings in 1994–95.
