"Downtown" Jeff Brown (born April 30, 1966 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenceman who played in the NHL from the mid 1980s to late 1990s.

He played junior hockey for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Brown won the Max Kaminsky Trophy as the best defenceman in the OHL in 1985-86.

During his career, Brown was considered to be in the upper-echelons of NHL defencemen. He was selected to play in the 1992 NHL All-Star Game and still holds many offensive records for the St. Louis Blues.

Brown will perhaps best be remembered for his contributions to the Vancouver Canucks' 1994 playoff run, where they came within one game of winning the Stanley Cup. Brown recorded fifteen points during the Canucks run to the final, which they eventually lost to the New York Rangers. Brown recorded two goals in game 6 of that series, forcing a deciding seventh game in New York City.

During the 1995–96 season, Jeff Brown was traded to the Hartford Whalers.

Brown, who played parts of 13 seasons in the NHL, suited up for 6 different franchises. The Quebec Nordiques, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes, the Toronto Maple Leafs and finally the Washington Capitals.

Brown was a threat from the blue line for the St. Louis Blues, and in the 1992–93 season, scored 25 goals and added 53 assists for a career high 78 points.

Brown was forced to retire from professional hockey due to lingering effects from a concussion.

Brown is the head coach for the North American Hockey League's St. Louis Bandits.
