David James "Brownie" Brown (born October 12, 1962, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey right winger. He was primarily known as a fighter as he lacked the skills to regularly fill other roles in the NHL. However, Dave Brown was very successful in his role as an enforcer and was widely regarded as one of the most feared players in the league due to his intimidating presence and fighting skills. In 1987, while a player for the Philadelphia Flyers, he was suspended for 15 games for cross-checking then-New York Rangers forward Tomas Sandstrom breaking his jaw and sustaining a concussion. At that time, it was among one of the stiffest penalties in NHL history.

Brown's name was engraved on the Stanley Cup in 1990 with Edmonton.

He played in 729 NHL games, scoring 45 goals and 52 assists with 1789 penalty minutes.
