Chris Brown To Skate With Springfield

Jan 28, 2015

St. Louis Jr. Blues defenseman Chris Brown has earned a weekend call-up from the Springfield Jr. Blues. Brown is a '96 birthyear defeseman that has been one of the Jr. Blues most steady defenseman this season. He has notched 21 points in 37 games this season. Head Coach Chris Flaugher said, "This is a great opportunity for Brownie to show he can play Tier II. He has been our most consistent defenseman all season and we use him in every situation and frequently double shift him." 

Brown will be leaving this weekend despite a weekend series with Peoria. Flaugher said, "Even if we were in contention for a league title or home ice for the playoffs, it wouldn't matter. We are here to help players move regardless of our situation. We lost two of our most skilled forwards earlier this year to situations that were better for them to progress and reach their goals. If Brownie gets a chance to stay the rest of the season, we would send him with no regrets."

Brown will skate this week and play this weekend.
