The 18-year-old winger, who can also play defence is currently in his second year of training with the Stars and last season, Ben dressed in 14 Elite League matches and four Challenge Cup contests.

Whilst playing most of his hockey with Scottish National League side, Dundee Comets, Brown also represented GB U18’s at the World Junior Championships this past summer, where he scored his first goal for GB.

Discussing how he has settled back into the Stars camp and training at the Elite League level, Ben said: “Camp has been great so far, it is nice to get back up to the speed of the Elite League after a long summer.

“Mase’s practices have been set up great and I feel I have adjusted pretty well after the long summer, it took me about one day to find my feet again and I am feeling good now.”

 

 

The Scot also shared his first impressions of the new squad from what he has seen so far and he added: “For me, the speed of the team and the drills during camp has been very good.

“We have a really fast and hard-working team this year and it is a great team to be a part of.”

Ben also stated his intentions to make this weekend’s opportunity count as he has his first chance to impress the new Stars coach in back-to-back games against Belfast Giants.

He said: “I am confident in being able to go out there and give my all for the team.

“I have worked hard on and off the ice over summer, so hopefully I can make that hard work pay off this weekend!”
