Keith Brown played with both sides of Blackhawks era’s having started his career playing against Gordie Howe and playing with Stan Mikita, while ending his career with Jeremy Roenick and the 1992 Stanley Cup Final team.

Brown was a solid two-way defenseman who could score and play defense in the great days of the 1980’s hockey of non-stop scoring action.  Brown had a +52 during an era of hockey that was like a video game inside rinks around the NHL.

Brown played hard he was injured quite a bit especially as the years and games piled on late in his career.  Brown as stated earlier was healthy enough to be on the 1992 magical run to the Finals.  He also was part of three teams that made the Conference Finals in the 80’s but couldn’t break through for a Stanley Cup victory.
