The Kelowna Rockets have added a familiar face to it's coaching staff.

Twenty four year-old Adam Brown will be the teams 'eye in the sky' in the press box at home games this season and will help out with the goaltenders.

Brown played four seasons with the Rockets from 2008 until 2012 before eventually turning pro.

Now the Yorba Linda, California resident is back with his old junior team.

"It is a bit different seeing the game from the the other side.  You understand what the coaches were thinking a bit more than when we were playing. It is a really good opportunity. I am excited to be here and work with a high level team."

Brown played pro hockey last season in Europe before electing to retire this summer.

"The passion and love for the game wasn't as high as it used to be. When you are doing something like playing a sport, if the passion and the love isn't there you might as well move on to something that is a little more long term", Brown added.
