Whalers sign Belle Tire forward Brown

The Plymouth Whalers today announced the signing of 16-year-old left wing Tyler J. Brown, who was selected by the Whalers in the eighth round (159th overall) of the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.

Brown, from Westland, scored 27 goals with 44 assists for 71 points in 72 games last season for the Belle Tire Under-16 Team - a team that won state and national championships.

Earlier this summer, the Whalers signed Brown’s teammate R.J. Mahalak (Monroe). Both players are skating with Plymouth in training camp and are expected to make the Whalers’ roster.

Brown is no relation to Tyler G. Brown, who was taken by the Whalers in the 11th round (219th overall) of May's draft.
