Doug Brown
Doug Brown
Right Wing
Number: 17
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 185
Shoots: Right
Born: Jun 12, 1964
Birthplace: Southborough, MA, United States
Acquired: 1. Claimed by Detroit from Pittsburgh in waiver draft on January 18, 1995; 2. Traded to Detroit by Nashville for Petr Sykora, Detroit's third-round choice (later traded to Edmonton, who picked Mike Comrie) and fourth-round compensatory choice in 1999 entry draft, on July 14, 1998.
Right winger Doug Brown entered his 16th NHL season in 2001-02 as a member of the Detroit Red Wings. A fine two-way worker, his strength has always been the ability to check diligently while contributing a fair bit on offense.

Born in Southborough, Massachusetts, Brown spent four years at Boston College where he was named to the Hockey East second all-star team in 1985 and 1986. Following his senior year in 1985-86 he was signed by the New Jersey Devils. His solid work at both ends of the ice helped the Devils improve and come within one game of reaching the Stanley Cup final in 1988.

After spending parts of seven years with the close-checking Devils, Brown signed with the high-flying Pittsburgh Penguins in 1993. It came as no surprise that he set a personal best with 55 points but the Pens stumbled in the first round of the playoffs against the Washington Capitals.

Following the owners' lockout, Brown found a permanent home with the Detroit Red Wings when they claimed him on waivers in January 1995. The fast-paced but disciplined style of the club under Scotty Bowman was a perfect fit for Brown. He helped the team reach the finals in 1995 for the first time in 29 years. Through the remainder of the decade he was utilized in all situations as the Wings won consecutive Stanley Cups in 1997 and 1998. Following the second Cup win he was claimed in the expansion draft by the Nashville Predators but Detroit quickly sent Petr Sykora and two draft choices to them to retain Brown's services. His consistent play helped the Wings remain competitive and enter the 2001-02 season with a realistic chance at another Stanley Cup.
