Just a few weeks after leading the USHL's Indiana Ice to the Clark Cup championship, former Blues defenseman and Ottawa native Jeff Brown has been hired as the head coach of the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League.
"To join my hometown OHL team and provide my family with the opportunity to live in the great city of Ottawa is a dream come true," said Brown. "The 67's have a storied past and a bright future at the new TD Place at Lansdowne and I can hardly wait for the start of training camp."

One of Brown's new charges, center Travis Konecny, had a solid rookie year with the 67's in 2013-14, scoring 26 goals and adding 44 assists in 63 games. Konecny is considered a strong contender for first-round selection in the 2015 Entry Draft.
