Indy Ice Name Jeff Brown Head Coach And GM December 4, 2012 8:09 AM

With a 7-16-1 record, the Ice are seventh place out of eight teams in the USHL’s Eastern Conference. A record like that, and everyone knew a change would likely come soon.

Owner Paul Skjodt and fans have been disappointed about the Ice’s slow start. They are expecting the Ice to contend after making the playoffs in each of the franchise’s eight years and winning the Clark Cup in 2009. Skjodt also has a reputation of not being afraid to make a coaching change when he feels like making one.

Enter former NHL defenseman Jeff Brown. Hired as general manager and head coach. Brown is hoping he can turn the team around after a slow start in the United States Hockey League.

“You’ve got to play as a team, work hard and at the end of the day you’ve got to have fun,” said the 46-year-old Brown, who played 747 games in a 13-year NHL career with seven teams.

He scored 154 goals and 431 assists during his playing career with the Quebec Nordiques, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Hartford Whalers, Carolina Hurricanes, Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.

Brown has four years of coaching experience in the North American Hockey League under his belt. Known for his ability to recruit and evaluate talent, Brown won the NAHL Championship last season with the St. Louis Bandits.
