10 Questions with Chad Brownlee

by John Gibson / Vancouver Canucks
Even though he's spent the last four years in Minnesota,  Chad Brownlee grew up cheering on the local team and is a BC boy to the core.

It's not a huge surprise who his favourite team is but you might find out something you wouldn't have guessed from this 6'2 defenceman's musical taste.

1. What artists/bands are in your iPod right now?

I’m a big country and rock fan. I just got a new CD by a guy named Eric Church. I liked Big and Rich’s new CD. And of course AC/DC, Hinder, and Buck Cherry.

2. What was the last movie you saw?

Open Season. It was pretty good.

3. What’s your favourite TV show(s)?

Planet Earth, the Discovery Channel show. It’s really interesting, and the footage is stuff you never get to see.

4. What’s your favourite NHL team?

Of course the Canucks

5. Who is your favourite NHL player?

Ever since I was younger, Trevor Linden has been my favourite player. He’s kind of like Mr. Canuck, and I’ve looked up to him for a really long time.

6. What is your favourite Food?


7. Do you play any other sports?

I play golf when I can. I was in track and field, played volleyball, a bit of basketball too. So I tried to do a lot of different things.

8. If you’ve been traveling, do you have a favourite city/country?

The only traveling I’ve really gotten to do is through hockey. I really liked Alaska though. We got to travel up there to Anchorage to play, and I just loved it there.

9. If you weren’t playing hockey what would you want to do for a career?

I’d like to get into Sports Psychology, because that’s my education background. But if I could do anything, it would be music actually. I’m a bit of a song writer and composer. I’ve been working on a lot of songs.

10. What was your most memorable hockey moment?

Probably in Vernon when I was in the BCHL, and we won the BCHL Championship. We went the whole playoffs without losing a game, so that was quite a memorable time.
