College Hockey:
Michigan’s Brown Signs With Vancouver

— Mike Brown of Michigan has decided to give up the remaining two years of his collegiate eligibility to sign with the Vancouver Canucks.

“I thought it was my opportunity and the right time for me to have the chance to go, Brown told Antoine Pitts of the Ann Arbor News. “I just want to show what I have and go play with the big boys.”

“Up until a week ago, Mike Brown was all set to come back to school,” Michigan coach Red Berenson told Pitts. “And now Vancouver comes into the scene and offers him a contact, and he bit on it. I’m surprised and disappointed.”

In his two years Brown scored 11 goals and 10 assists. He was a fifth-round draft pick in the 2004 NHL entry draft by the Canucks.
