Andrew Conrad Brown (born February 15, 1944 in Hamilton, Ontario) is a retired Canadian ice hockey goaltender. His father, Adam also played hockey in the National Hockey League as a left winger.[1]

Brown started his professional hockey career with the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League in 1972. He also played with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where in 1974 he would set the NHL single-season record for penalty minutes by a goaltender with 60 (the record has since been surpassed). He continued to play after his NHL days with the World Hockey Association's Indianapolis Racers.

In 1974, Andy Brown became the last goaltender to play in a professional game without a goalie mask, which earned him the nickname "Fearless".[1][2]

He retired in 1977 after spinal surgery.
