Prough has been a consistent scorer for Brown, and
will serve as an assistant captain this season.
Key Statistics: Prough
is a consistent scorer who has posted steady production
in each of his three prior years at Brown. After scoring
20 points as a freshman, Prough produced 30 as a sophomore
and led Brown last year with 32 points as a junior.
For his career he has 42 goals and 41 assists for 83
What He Does: During
a 10-minute conversation with Brown coach Roger Grillo,
he used the word "consistent" at least a half-dozen
times. The numbers bear that out, and last year he didn't
go more than two games without recording at least one
The Bigger Picture: Players like Tyler
Burton, Nick Johnson, Brandon Wong, and Nick Dodge get
more notoriety around ECAC Hockey, but failing to include
Prough among the league's elite group of forwards is
a gross oversight. Prough is on pace to pass the 50-goal
and 100-point plateaus early this season. The last Brown
player to score 50 goals in his career was Damian Prescott,
who finished his career 10 years ago following the 1997-98
Brown head coach Roger Grillo
on Prough's continued improvement: "He's
a great kid and very coachable, and that's why he's
continued to get better. He listens and learns and then
puts in the effort, and that's why he has improved."
