May 2019 – Brown completed a successful rookie campaign in Belleville. Adjusting to the pro game can be a challenge, and Brown was able to maintain solid offensive numbers, putting up .75 points-per-game average. He found great chemistry with Drake Batherson as did pretty much anyone who played with him. The knock on Brown continues to be the way he uses his size. At six-foot-six and 218 pounds, Brown tends to shy away from using his size to his advantage by leveraging his reach and available power in puck battles. He also has faced a challenge staying healthy dating back to his junior career. If he can use his size and find a way to maintain his health, Brown projects to be a solid top-six forward. While it may not happen next season, look for him to get more than the two games he got in Ottawa this season. Jordan Dehane

September 2018 – Despite breaking camp with the team last season, Brown will begin the 2018-19 campaign with the AHL’s Belleville Senators. The move is sure to raise eyebrows with some people given that the team is in full blown rebuild mode and Brown is a perceived top two prospect in the organization. It’s far too early to write him off yet though as lots of 20 year old’s have benefited from a little time in the minors. He should help inject some much needed offense to a Belleville squad that struggled mightily to score in 2017-18. Brad Phillips

July 2018 – For the second year in a row, injuries, and a trip to the WJHC, cause Brown to suit up for about half of his team’s games in 2017-18. He played just 32 contests split between the Windsor Spitfires and the Kitchener Rangers but when he was in the lineup he was a force, establishing a new career best in goals with 22 and added 26 assists, finishing the year with a point per game average of 1.50, the ninth best mark in the OHL. Brown was an animal for the Rangers in the playoffs by amassing 27 points and a league best 22 helpers to place fifth in playoff scoring. All-in-all it was a nice bounce back season after an underwhelming draft+1 campaign. Worst case is he plays 2018-19 in Belleville but certainly don’t rule out the possibility of him cracking the big club. He had a four game taste last year and you can bet he has his sights set on permanent spot, although he’ll have some competition by the name of Colin White. Brad Phillips

January 2018 – Logan Brown went into the 2018 World Junior Championship in Buffalo this year hoping to take that next step and dominate the competition. Instead, he ended up injuring his knee halfway through the group stage, only playing 3 games in the tournament with limited ice time, and logging one assist. After heading back to Ottawa to evaluate his knee and missing the bronze medal game against the Czechs, Brown was promptly moved from the Windsor Spitfires to the Kitchener Rangers in a deal that was expected for a while. When healthy, Brown had been a driving force for Windsor, providing 24 points in 15 games. Brown now goes to the Midwest division-leading, Kitchener Rangers who will most likely continue to improve on their 26-13-2 record. Brown will now join a high power offense in combination with prospects Adam Mascherin, Logan Stanley, Givani Smith, Kole Sherwood, and more. Marcus Griep

November 2017 – Brown has looked every bit like the first round pick that he was early on in the season. He broke camp with the Senators and saw action in his first four NHL and found the assist column once. But ultimately Brown was sent back for another year of development in the OHL. Seemingly not wanting to be pigeon-holes into being a playmaker, Brown has assumed the role of sniper with 10 goals in 11 games so far this year and is already halfway to besting his career high of 21. Brad Phillips

October 2017 – What a difference a year makes. Brown’s draft+1 year was by all account disappointing, failing to improve his offensive output substantially and missing out on the USA World Junior team. But thanks to some strong pre-season play and a couple of injuries Brown will start the season in  the NHL. Despite this positive development he’s won’t have much fantasy relevance this season. Brad Phillips

September 2017 – The opportunity was there for Logan Brown to make the Senators after Colin White went down with an injury (and Derick Brassard already sidelined) and seized hold of it. In three preseason games he’s notched three goals and five points and has frequently been the best player on the ice. At this point it’s hard to believe he won’t stick around for at least nine games to see how he can handle regular season action. Brad Phillips

January 2017 – For the third time this season Brown will miss a significant chunk of time with an injury. Previously missing a total of 20 games with wrist and shoulder injuries, he’s expected to miss a minimum of four weeks with his latest ailment, a right hand injury. When he has played the big centre has produced as advertised. Playing in 25 of Windsor’s games this season, Brown has 12 goals, 21 helpers and is a minus-1. With a points-per-game of 1.32 he’s slightly ahead of his 2015-16 pace of 1.25. Brad Phillips

December 2016 – Brown was one of the final cuts from Team USA. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given that he has battled a wrist injury that has limited the Windsor Spitfire to just 15 games this season. Brad Phillips

December 2016 – Logan Brown is one of 16 forwards names to the USA preliminary roster for the 2017 World Junior Hockey Championship. He’s a safe bet to make the team as he is clearly one of the 13 best forwards. He’s missed the past three week with a wrist injury, but Brown should be good to go in time to compete for his country. In the 15 games Brown has suited up for the Windsor Spitfires this year, he’s racked up 21 points. Despite the limited number of games he’s still third on the team in scoring. Ottawa fans will want to watch team USA closely to get a glimpse of their future with Brown and White down the middle. Brad Phillips 

September 2016 – Despite his best efforts, the Sens most recent first round pick could not survive the first round of cuts at training camp this year and has been sent back to the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires. Brown should be leaned on heavily by coach Rocky Thompson to produce offense and he has the talent to finish among the league leaders in OHL scoring. Brad Phillips

August 2016 – Brown is the latest prospect from the 2016 draft class to sign his entry-level deal. He’s a long shot to make the team but will get a look at training camp in the fall and will no doubt gain valuable experience from his first pro camp. Brad Phillips

July 2016 – Logan Brown had a tale of two seasons. He was playing a passive and pass first game until the CHL Top Prospect game where he had a stand out performance dominating at times with his size and speed. His confidence seemed to swell as the season wore on, shooting more and having a far greater impact on the game. The scouts took notice, and his draft stock soared. Brown could soon be the Senators first line center for a long time, for now he has another season of junior ahead of him. Peter Harling

June 2016 – The Sens have selected the hulking 6-06 centre with the 11th pick in the 2016 Draft and traded up one spot to grab him. Brown improved statistically in his second OHL season scoring 21 times and dishing out 53 assists. He really shot up draft lists at the U18 by finishing fifth in tournament scoring with three goals and nine assists. While seen primarily as a setup man, he started to shoot more in the second half of the campaign and the goals followed. 15 of his 21 goals came after the calendar flipped to 2016  He boasts one of the best combinations of size and skill in the whole draft and has an impressive package of vision, stickhandling and elite playmaking ability. Add this all up and you get visions of Joe Thornton dancing in your head. The scariest thing about Brown, for opponents at least, is that he may be still growing. He grew half an inch this past season. The main knock against him is his strength but he worked to rectify this by cutting his body fat to get stronger and faster. With Colin White and now Logan Brown in the pipeline, Ottawa is starting to build some impressive prospect depth down the middle. Brad Phillips

November 2015 – Teams looking for a potential number one center can look to Logan Brown. Brown is a playmaking center with size and is a powerful and agile skater. He uses his height to protect the puck and is strong along the boards dominating puck possession. His great vision makes players on his wings better and he has defensive awareness as well. Peter Harling

February 2016 – He has the size and strength teams desire in a first line center and has a strong all-around game. He reads and reacts to plays, protects the puck well and is strong on the boards. First line center may be a stretch, but he would make an excellent second line pivot. Peter Harling
