Connor Brown scored two goals and added two assists in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Florida Panthers.
Brown had just three points in 16 games coming into tonight, so this offensive outburst wasn't expected. He opened the scoring at the 5:55 mark of the first period and he gave his team a 2-1 lead less than 10 minutes later. Brown also helped set up goals by Leo Komarov and Jake Gardiner. It was a nice performance from Brown, but don't rush to add him to your fantasy lineup. He can remain on the waiver wire. Nov 17 - 10:54 PM

Connor Brown potted his first NHL goal in Thursday's 6-5 OT win against Anaheim.

He forced overtime when he scored a power-play tally at the 15:37 mark of the third period. "It's something I'll remember the rest of my life," said Brown. "My first point was an empty-net assist. It's nice to have my first goal be a real hockey goal that meant something big." Brown also added an assist in the contest to give him three points in his first four NHL games.

Connor Brown made his NHL debut Thursday night.

"It was pretty awesome," Brown said. "The first period was pretty surreal, playing in front of this crowd and this city. (I was) obviously pretty disappointed they got a couple of fluke goals. I would have liked to have the game go the other way but it was, all in all, a memorable night." He finished the match with a minus-2 rating in 15:40 of ice time. Brown got to play because of an injury to Leo Komarov.
Mar 18 - 8:38 AM

Connor Brown has been called up by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Brown has nine goals and 24 points in 28 AHL games in 2015-16. He might make his NHL debut on Thursday.
Mar 17 - 12:22 PM

Connor Brown played with Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk in Monday night's 4-1 exhibition win over Ottawa.

He didn't pick up a point in the match, but posted four shots and didn't look out of place on a combination that used to feature Phil Kessel. Obviously, Brown isn't being looked as a replacement for Kessel's offense, but he is being placed in situations to succeed. That will give the Leafs' brass a better understanding of what they have in the pipeline and how to construct the roster going into the year. Brown is hoping to make the roster, but a sophomore season in the AHL wouldn't hurt either.

Connor Brown exceeded expectations during his rookie season in the AHL.

"He's a guy that has proven people wrong, he's probably proven me wrong on an expectation basis," said Marlies head coach Gord Dineen. "I didn't expect him to have the season he's had. He's a guy that every day of his life he's had to prove himself and he's doing it now, he hasn't reached his final goal. When he does get to the NHL he's going to be the same way." He led the Leafs' AHL affiliate in scoring, earned a selection to the All-Star Game and finished first in scoring among all rookie skaters. The Leafs want to be patient with their prospects, so no one will be rushed into the NHL until they are ready. However, we should see Brown get plenty of looks at training camp in the fall.

If the Maple Leafs trade bodies away at the trade deadline, they may give Connor Brown an opportunity with the big club.

The 21-year-old was Toronto's sixth round pick in 2012. Brown has had an impressive season in the AHL with the Marlies scoring 36 points in 47 games. Brown may get an extended look if the Leafs decide to blow things up going forward.

Connor Brown may be a member of the AHL's Toronto Marlies this season.

However, there's still a chance that the Leafs could return Brown to the Erie Otters as an over-aged junior. Leafs assistant GM Kyle Dubas got a first-hand look at Brown in the OHL and he's been impressed. "When we played them in the playoffs, it was very noticeable to me that on the penalty kill he was outstanding, and Connor McDavid wasn't on the ice with him," said Dubas, who was GM of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. "Everyone talks about (Brown's) prolific offence. But his ability on the penalty kill to tip that puck ... there aren't many guys who can get in there and position themselves. He brings a lot as a player. A lot of people always try to doubt Connor Brown — he's going to be a really good player." Brown racked up 45 goals and 128 points in 68 games last season en route to capturing OHL's outstanding player of the year.
