Michigan winger Kent Brothers has scored two goals in the last two weekends and also has
been promoted to the power-play alongside center Todd Brost and winger Mike Moes.
Oh Brothers! Do we
have an icer for you

BY MIKE GILL
Call this "The Season on the Brink."
That's how sophomore right wing Kent Brothers
assesses this year in terms of his personal career. It's a
turning point for him.
"I'm at the brink," said Brothers. "I'm on the edge
of developing and becoming a better hockey player -
or I could just as easily slip back."
Each time Brothers enters the arena, he enters with
that thought in the back of his mind.
Then again, it might be lodged in the front. "This
year, I try to approach even practice as a challenge. I'm
learning to challenge and push myself. I'm sure as hell
not going to set a ceiling for myself."
LATELY, it seems as though his challenge is
being met. In the last two weeks, Brothers has scored
twice - equaling his total last year. He's also been
promoted to the power-play line and is skating with
Mike Moes and captain Todd Brost.
But it's not goals that the team looks for in
Brothers. They look for size. Physical prowess. The
type of guy that grinds away at the other team.
"He brings a physical dimension which every team
needs," said co-captain Myles O'Connor. "Last week,
we played a tough series. For a player like Kent to
come to the forefront, he's a big part of the team."
BROTHERS is from the Canadian province
Newfoundland earning him the nickname "Neuf" from
his teammates. Not many people have found New-
foundland yet, so it's a laid back type of lifestyle.
"This is my home and I'm proud of it," Brothers stated
as he pulls out a back copy of National Geographic
with a story on his province.
Brothers relishes his summers where he can fish for
trout, and drink out of a fresh stream. "Here, you have
to chew water, or pay $2.50 for a gallon of the stuff I
get at home," he said.
Ann Arbor and metro Detroit are not free of hustle
and bustle. The differences between his two homes are
as vast as the varying opinions on the impending
Canadian-U.S. trade bill. Brothers admits I-94 scares
him. "Civilization was pretty new to him," teammate
Jimmy Ballantine said.
As he speaks of the differences between his home
land and home school, the personality, the feelings of

Kent Brothers come to a forefront.
CALL Kent Brothers the hockey player with a
social conscience.
"People have different values than me," Brothers
said. "They worry more about BMWs or Jaguars than
they do about the important things. You tend to get a
different view of what people down here see as
important.
"The most important thing in the world are people.
And you have to be concerned with how people are
living. People living in cans, you feel so bad. Is this
the best we can do for society? And then, some people
have the nerve (to say) 'What a bum. Do something
with your life.' That's a shock - we gotta give their
heads a shake."
Brothers also points to his family, school, friends
and church as other important values in his life. His
crowning moment as a Wolverine was scoring a goal
two weeks ago against Ohio State, not because it was
some sensational play or a game winner, but because
his dad was watching from the stands.
THAT should say something about Kent Brothers.-
Brothers works at coach Red Berenson's hockey
camp in the summer because he feels it's his
responsibility. Brothers said, "Anyone who gets to
college hockey has a duty to put something back in
the system for the little kids. I.=was given an oppor-
tunity and I hope to encourage a few more kids."
He's a guy who enjoys the experience he's been;
given as he admits, "Right now, I'm just lovin' life.
Things are going well in school, and in hockey. I'm
really fortunate."
He's a guy who's style is rough, whose favorite
player's are Piston bad-boy Bill Laimbeer, and NHIL
bruiser Marty McSorley. Yet one whose heart might
open a little farther than most.
And he's a guy with a goal when he finishes his
time at Michigan. "I don't want to regret anything I've
done, so I'll be able to look back and say, 'Kent, you
did the best you can, you took full advantage of
everything, you have nothing to be disappointed of.'
"That's a goal of mine. To look Coach Berenson in
the face and say, 'You know, you took a chance on me
and I really appreciate it, and I hope I didn't let you
down."'
