"We have always liked Dave and felt that he was a Flyer," said Clarke in making the announcement. "We felt that he was ready to move up in responsibilities. We contacted the Rangers and asked their permission to allow Dave to move up in the scouting world. They gave us permission and we talked with Dave. He was happy to come aboard and we are happy to have him.

"There are a lot of similarities between Dave and Ron Hextall. Both are very hard working, very decent, very disciplined people and they have very good judgment on National Hockey League players. Dave's main job will still be pro scouting, but he will have other responsibilities as well."

"It's an exciting opportunity; things like this don't come around very often," said Brown. "For me to have more of an expanded role, than just being a pro scout, was exciting. Being back with my original organization is very exciting as well. I'm looking forward to the new challenge.

"The bulk of my work will still be knowing the players and doing a lot of pro scouting in the American Hockey League and NHL. I will also have to know my own teams (Flyers and their American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms). I will be taking on some responsibilities for the Phantoms, in the terms of selecting the players for the team."

Brown, 43, most recently served as the New York Rangers' head professional scout for the last three years (2003-04 through 2005-06). Prior to that, he was a pro scout for the Rangers for five seasons (1998-99 through 2002-03). Brown joined the Rangers after being an assistant coach for the Flyers for two seasons (1996-97 and 1997-98).

A native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Brown played parts of 14 seasons in the NHL (1982-83 through 1995-96), recording 45 goals and 52 assists for 97 points and 1,789 penalty minutes in 729 career games with the Flyers (1982-83 to 1988-89 and 1991-92 through 1994-95), Edmonton Oilers (1988-89 through 1990-91) and San Jose Sharks (1995-96). He was a member of the 1990 Stanley Cup Champion Edmonton Oilers. In parts of 11 seasons with the Flyers, Brown registered 39 goals and 39 assists for 78 points and 1,382 penalty minutes in 552 games. He is sixth on the team's All-Time List in penalty minutes. Brown was selected by the Flyers in the seventh round (140th overall) of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft.
