ST. JOHN’S, NL (February 23, 2016) – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the IceCaps have recalled defenceman Travis Brown from the Brampton Beast of the ECHL.

The 21-year-old rookie has scored seven goals and 20 points in 51 games with the Beast this season.

Chosen originally by the Chicago Blackhawks with the 149th overall selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Brown signed a one-year, two-way American Hockey League contract with the IceCaps in August.

The six-foot-two, 200-pound blueliner split the previous four seasons between the Moose Jaw Warriors and Victoria Royals of the Western Hockey League (WHL).
