28-Year-Old Right WingRW
Minnesota Wild
2018 Fantasy Outlook
After spending six seasons between the Lightning and the Ducks, Brown is headed back to Minnesota -- his home state. Just in time too, as the Wild need a physical presence that has enough speed to make plays. Brown is just that, accruing 35 points and 276 hits over the last three seasons. Expect the 28-year-old to carve out a fourth-line role and wreak havoc on opponents, but he likely won't be contributing to fantasy championships. Read Past Outlooks
$Brown secured a two-year, $1.375 million deal with the Wild in July of 2018.

Brown is a hard-working, fast-skating checker who creates chaos on the forecheck. He's not afraid to throw his slim frame around, but his rate-limiting factor is his skill set. Brown gets points by opportunity, rather than creating them himself. And that was clearly evident in 2016-17 when his point total dropped to just six (three goals, three assists) in 64 games. Brown has just a single year left on a deal that pays $1.25 million, and at 27, his days in the NHL are limited.
Brown is a speedy, fourth-line penalty killer who doesn't mind rubbing opponents the wrong way with his tiny torpedo ways. He'll never put up many points – his 22 in 78 games last season was the best output of his career. But Brown will bounce his undersized frame off opponents like a ping pong ball. And he forces turnovers, which he turns into shots because of his speed. Unfortunately, there are plenty of 20-point, 100-hit, 150-shot guys just like him on the wire. Brown should be there, too, not on your fantasy lineup.
Brown is the kind of bottom-six, energy forward that every team desires. He skates with high intensity on every shift and plays a whole lot bigger than his 5-foot-10, 172-pound frame. His offensive upside is ultimately limited, but he does have enough of a playmaker's mentality to fill in on the second-line for short spurts. The Bolts and coach Jon Cooper will count on him for important minutes, but don't count on him to make a fantasy impact for your squad.
Brown is a former NCAA free agent signed by the Bolts. He struggled in the AHL last season, in large part because of a slow recovery from a broken collarbone. The playmaker will need more time in the minors to grow his game, but he'll likely be a regular in a year. He won't ever be an offensive wizard, but he will one day bounce between the second and third lines. And maybe even top the 55-point mark.
Maybe Brown will buck the odds -- there just aren't that many college free agents who turn into consistent offensive performers in the NHL. He's probably better suited, though, as a third-line sparkplug who can pound the opposition and possibly chip in 10-12 goals. The Bolts' wings are thin among the bottom six so he has a shot at a big-league job this fall. But his fantasy impact will be slim.
