Hurley was one of three freshmen defensemen to see regular action for Brown in 2004-05.


Key Statistics: Sean Hurley established himself as one of the better offensive defenseman in the ECACHL as a freshman. He led Brown's rookie class and all Bears defensemen in scoring with three goals and 18 assists for 21 points. Hurley was named to the ECACHL's All-Rookie team.

What He Does: Hurley adds an offensive presence to the Brown blueline and quarterbacked one of the team's power-play units throughout the season. He had plenty of experience after playing in the USHL and didn't need much time to adjust to Divison I college hockey.

The Bigger Picture: Brown's program has posted three consecutive winning seasons but late-season success has been fleeting. Hurley will be an important part of the Bears' aspirations to earn a first-round playoff bye
and make it to Albany for the league's championship weekend. Hurley covets the spotlight and performing in big situations and will take on a
leadership role despite being a second-year player.

Brown head coach Roger Grillo on Hurley: “We're hoping he can take off right from where he was at the end of last year. He played in some tough spots, some key spots for us. He's a real competitive kid who wants to be in those situations."
