Brett Howden doesn't appear to like to do things the easy way. While everyone focuses on speed, he prefers to slow the game down and create openings in the defense through puck movement. While many with good scoring touch seek out the empty ice, Howden thrives on the gritty areas in front of the net. Whatever he is doing, it seems to be working. Here's the tale of the tape:
Current Team: Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL
Date of Birth: March 29, 1998
Place of Birth: Oakbank, Manitoba Canada
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 192 lbs
Howden is the younger brother of Quinton Howden, an alumnus of the Warriors and a current Florida Panthers prospect. Despite following in his brother's footsteps, Brett has been quick to establish his own reputation, posting 64 points in 68 games in Moose Jaw this past season. That came on the heels of a more than respectable 22-24-46 showing in his rookie WHL campaign.
