2014 NHL Draft: Boston College recruit Christopher Brown

Christopher Brown's brother Patrick was the Boston College captain for the 2013-14 season. - Matt Dewkett

There is no shortage of family lineage when discussing the hockey pedigree of Boston College recruit Christopher Brown of the Cranbrook School.

The Pontiac, Mich. native is the son of Doug Brown who had 420 points in nearly 1,000 career NHL games, mostly with the Detroit Red Wings. Doug was also an All-Hockey East and All-American performer at BC.

His brother Patrick was the captain of the 2013-14 Eagles and recently signed a pro contract with the Carolina Hurricanes organization. His uncle is BC associate head coach Greg Brown, a former Eagle himself.

The youngest Brown with NHL hopes has put up gaudy offensive numbers against Michigan high school competition, but next year will get his first real test in the USHL with the Green Bay Gamblers.

If he has anywhere near the "it factor" of his brother Patrick or the ability to score at the NHL level like his father, he will make an NHL team very happy it selected him in the 2014 NHL Draft on Saturday.
