|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Brady had size, but also had playmaking skills. Expectations were high for him coming out of juniors, especially with
getting drafted so high. The death of his mother, however might have had some bearing on his play in his last years with
the Medicine Hat Tigers.
He had some good seasons in Utica, even going as high as 96 points in 90-91, but frustration was high and confidence
was low because he could not make and stay in the New Jersey lineup. Lacking speed, he had been asked to play a
power forward role; he didn't embrace this task. Thus, he would be made available for the expansion draft in 1993.
He didn't get picked, but ended up with the Sens anyway thanks to a trade.
While in Ottawa, he would be the player to score the first goal in the modern history of the Senators. He got 24 points in
55 games with them, but was let go to sign with Dallas.
He didn't play many games in Texas. Most of those were in Kalamazoo, the IHL team. He would finish his career in the
I, retiring in 2001 after the league folded.
These days, he's residing in Calgary, where he grew up, from what I understand.
