Stan Brown came out of the North Bay Arena Stars hockey system as a 16-year-old in 1914 and made it to Toronto where he played with the OHA-Senior St. Pats in 1916-17. In eight games he had three goals. In 1917-18, he was a regular member of the St. Michael's Majors.

In the fall of 1918, Brown joined the Toronto Dentals for two years before moving on to play for the University of Toronto for three years. The next four years saw Brown wear the Greyhounds uniform in Sault Ste Marie.

It was in 1926-27, at the age of 28, that Brown got his first taste of the NHL, playing 24 games with the New York Rangers. He scored six times and had eight points. The next season he was traded to Detroit for Harry Meeking and Archie Briden on October 10, 1927. He responded by scoring two goals. He was traded to Montreal by Detroit in 1928 for cash and the loan of Peter Palangio, but Brown never did play for the Habs.

The final seven years of his pro hockey career were spent with the Windsor Bulldogs of the IHL. He retired from hockey after the 1934-35 season.

Brown played in 48 NHL games, and had eight goals and two assists.
