On January 7, Chad Brownlee was transferred to the 30-day IR by the ECHL Idaho Steelheads. But his next move may be onto the roster of the Gwinnett Gladiators. His name appeared on Gladiators coach Jeff Pyle's white board on the same night that he expressed extreme dissatisfaction with his entire blue line, calling out Jon Sitko, Dinos Stamoulis and Chad Denny specifically. Pyle said he would be making changes to the line-up in conjunction with the all-star break.
Brownlee is a 23-year-old rookie out of Minnesota-Mankato. Here are his stats, and here's his profile on Hockey's Future. The 6'2, right-shooting defenseman was a 6th-round pick of Vancouver in 2003.
