|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Brumwell made a good offensive contribution when he first came to the Devils, especially during his second season
with the team. Of the 7 goals he scored, 5 were on the power play. Good ratio there.
The Devils did get deeper on the major league level over those couple years, so Brumwell went from being the extra
defenseman to one of the regulars in the AHL lineup, be it with both the Maine Mariners and later the Utica Devils,
whom he captained for a time. He would win the Calder Cup with the Mariners in 84, and would be chosen to the
AHL Second All-Star team with Utica in 88, amassing 66 points that season on the strength of 53 assists, his best
offensive output as a pro.
He would leave the Devils (both Utica and the organization) in 1989, signing on with New Haven of the AHL. (I think
they were LA's AHL rep at the time?) He would play 2 seasons with them before retiring.
