• In the Fall of 2009, he will attend the University of Michigan as the first ever recruit from Texas.
• Growing up in Flower Mound, Texas, Brown played most of his minor hockey within the Dallas minor hockey system before playing for Honeybaked (Detroit) in Minor Midget. In 2007-08, before he made the jump to the U.S. National Team Development Program, he led Honeybaked in power-play goals (18) and game-winning goals (9).
• His first hockey team was in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he learned to skate at the age of three.
• Brown credits his family for having had the most influence on his career – “they have been there for me through the ups and downs and they also got me into the sport”.
• If he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: George W. Bush – “he is my favorite President”, Mario Lemieux - “he is my all-time favorite player” and Kenny Chesney – “he is my favorite artist”.
