Image for Former Maple Leafs: Where Are They Now?

Nowadays with social media it is much easier to keep up with former players and see what they are doing. However that is not the case with all former players. Some are a little more low key. I recently spoke with four former Maple Leafs to find out what they have been doing during their retirement. Find out what they had to say.
Note: I will be referring to myself as JR in this article.

Mike Brown

Brown played a total of 407 games in the NHL with 112 of those games with the Maple Leafs. During his time with the Maple Leafs, Brown collected five goals and eight assists for 13 points. The enforcer also collected 213 PIM (Penalties In Minutes) while averaging just over nine minutes in ice time per game with the Maple Leafs.

Final Thoughts

It was a great experience getting to talk to these four gentlemen. I have previously done a full interview with Danny Markov and would love the opportunity to do an in depth interview with any of the other three. I hope to try and do another one of these in the future. Hope you all found this interesting.
