Brent has had a successful 18 year professional hockey career, with over 1,000 games under his belt, including 75 playoff games. Starting in Vancouver, he acted as an offensive defenseman and played a key role on the team’s power play unit. After the 2004-05 lockout, Brent realized that he needed to switch his style of play to adapt to the new rules of the game.
After modifying his approach, Brent began making a name for himself in Chicago as a defensive defenseman. He quickly became a staple on the team’s penalty kill and was known for his remarkable shot blocking. The new style of play proved to be crucial, as Brent went on to win the Stanley Cup in 2010 with the Chicago Blackhawks.
Brent ultimately ended up leaving the NHL in 2011 and joined the KHL where he played two years for the Novokuznetsk Metallurg and Salavat Yulaev (Ufa, Russia). In 2014 Brent returned to Chicago to play for the AHL’s Chicago Wolves.
