JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Icemen, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack announced today that Christopher  Brown has been returned to the team by the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL). 

Brown, 25, returns to the Icemen where he has recorded 19 pts (5g 14a) in 25 games played this season. Brown collected a goal and an assist in 25 appearances during his call-up with Hershey.  He was initially loaned to Hershey on December 21.

Last season, Brown posted a career-high 29 points (15g, 14a) in 54 appearances in Jacksonville.  Prior to his time in Jacksonville, Brown registered 19 points (11g, 8a) in 38 games played with the Wheeling Nailers during the 2019-20 season, earning an AHL call-up with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (16 games).
