A defensive center Christopher Brown is best compared to Brad Richardson. Brown, one of the best if not the best players in the faceoff dot, is a stellar player in his own zone and a penalty killing expert with great hands. Brown is almost always playing in the final few minutes protecting his team's lead or winning faceoffs to help his team find a goal late and is someone with plenty of potentials to be a shut down forward at the next level. In his own zone, his positioning is phenomenal. He helps his teammates cover guys, battles in the corners and in front of the net and helps his defenders out. He bodies opponents well and stick checks very responsibly and forcefully to do it without taking penalties but with a very high success rate. In the neutral zone, he rarely turns the puck over and loves to carry the puck into the offensive zone. He has wonderful, crafty hands and a wonderful combination of speed and agility to get around opponents while generating odd-man rushes. He uses his vision to set up teammates for easy goals and cycles the puck well. He is actively working on his shot which will only help turn him into more of a threat in the offensive zone. He forechecks hard, not afraid to throw a hit but is never the last man out of the offensive zone either as he backchecks arguably harder than anyone in the GTHL. Brown primarily plays on the penalty kill as a very effective center but does see time on his team's powerplay as well. Christopher Brown has all the tools to be an effective shutdown centerman at the next level as he continues to develop.
