A Dream Cut Short
During the series, a rapidly-developing Brown impressed the Oil Kings’ coaches and management, who invited him to continue his junior career with the team. Brown accepted, hoping to continue pursuing his dream to play in the National Hockey League. However, his dream came to an abrupt end at age 19, when he suffered a broken neck in a head-on collision with a drunk driver on his way home from practice.
Though Brown’s injury necessitated a long and painful recovery process, he remained hopeful of making a return to hockey. He enrolled in the University of Denver, whose hockey team played in the NCAA’s top division. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be; Brown continued to be dogged by complications from his injury, ultimately requiring a career-ending spinal fusion surgery.
