Pens Draft History - Rob Brown

The Pittsburgh Penguins and CONSOL Energy Center will be hosting the 2012 NHL Draft on June 22nd and 23rd. In the days leading up to the draft, PittsburghPenguins.com will be highlighting some past draft selections throughout Penguins' history.

Rob Brown/Pittsburgh Penguins


1986 - 4th round - 67th overall

The former linemate of Penguins great Mario Lemieux joined Pittsburgh in 1987, a year after he was drafted in the fourth round (67th) from the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League in the 1986 NHL Draft. Brown established his scoring touch early, scoring 24 goals in 51 games during his rookie season. When he was permanently placed on a line with Lemieux for the 1988-89 season, Brown erupted, posting career highs in goals (49), assists (66) and points (115).

With Brown’s help, the Penguins reached the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. Brown was traded to the Hartford Whalers during the 1990-91 season. The right winger returned to Pittsburgh in 1997 and enjoyed a few more good years with the team after transforming his game into a more defensively sound forward. Brown would post 342 points (150G-192A) in 414 career games wearing a Penguins uniform.
