It would be easy to categorize Connor Brown as the stereotypical undersized player who has all the skill in the world but probably doesn’t have the “tool box,” or is unable to handle the physical game. But it really couldn’t be further from the truth.
Attacks the game with a low and wide compact skating stance, using strong legs to stabilize in many situations, including one-on-one battles along the boards or around the net … A fearless player who will drive hard to the net, dig for pucks along the wall and in corners versus much larger opponents, Brown’s engine runs full throttle on every shift … controls the puck while moving at top speed and can blow by unassuming defenders in two steps to the outside … established himself as a lethal power play threat down low on the left side with a deadly one-timer he typically fires from down on one knee, or will draw defenders in, then set up teammates with laser sharp passes … has more than his fair share of ability to play the game at both ends, and an unselfish offensive zone mentality used in all situations on the ice including PK and critical defensive zone faceoffs in close games … possesses soft hands and a shot that he can put over a goalie’s shoulder with forehand or back hand … not overly powerful but quick and accurate … a very intense player who has dropped the gloves on occasion … will need to add to his 170lb frame to make an impact at the pro level, however the tools are there to accomplish many things when the frame fills out … Do not underestimate Connor Brown because of the size stigma or his draft position. The ceiling is very high.
