Larry Brown was a textbook stay-at-home defenseman who spent a decade in the NHL. He played his position well in his own zone and rarely incurred an unnecessary penalty.

The native of Brandon, Manitoba played four years of junior with the hometown Wheat Kings and was the property of the New York Rangers. After spending one year each in the Eastern and Central Leagues, he played 15 games with the Blueshirts in 1969-70. New York was deep on the blueline so Brown was sent to the Detroit Red Wings for forward Peter Stemkowski in October 1970. Brown was solid for the sad sack Wings but was re-acquired by the Rangers when injuries hit midway through the season.

The Philadelphia Flyers picked up Brown at the Intra-League Draft in June 1971 to add depth to their defensive brigade. He played 12 games but battled assorted injuries before he was claimed on waivers by the L.A. Kings in January 1972. Brown found a home on the Los Angeles blueline and remained there for six years. He was a solid contributor to the club's overall improvement and its impressive 105-point season in 1974-75. By the late '70s, the Kings wanted to give younger players more ice time so Brown was sent to the minors where he toiled for two years before retiring in 1980.
