The son of former Toronto Maple Leaf great Carl Brewer, Mike was one of the main ingredients responsible for the dramatic turnaround in the hockey program in the early 90's. He helped carve the way for the 1993 team to make it to the NCAA Tournament, the last team at Brown to do so. After going through a 1-25-0 freshman season, Brewer helped turn it around. Two years later, the Bears went 9-15-3, and 6-2-2 in the Ivy League. That Ivy record was good enough for Brown to win its first Ivy League Championship since 1976, and its second since 1951. In Brewer's final season, the Bears improved even more, finishing with a record of 11-15-4, and 10-8-4 in ECAC play, their best conference finish since 1976. Brewer's freshman year was individually successful. He finished the year as Brown's second leading scorer with 5 goals and 8 assists for 13 points. He began to make his mark as a sophomore, when he led the Bears in scoring, finishing with 7 goals and 24 assists for 31 points. He also led the ECAC defensemen in scoring with 6 goals and 20 assists for 26 points, and he was named to the First Team All-ECAC team. As a junior, Brewer continued to thrive. Although he missed six games due t studying abroad in Sweden, he finished the season with a total of 4 goals and 18 assists for 22 points. That was good enough to earn him Second Team All-ECAC honors, and he was selected to play for Team Canada in the USA Cup Tournament. Brewer, a Bobby Orr style defenseman, had the best season for a defenseman in over 20 years as a senior. He finished the season with 13 goals and 34 assists for 47 points, while leading the Bears in scoring, and leading the ECAC in goals by a defenseman. He also led the ECAC in game-winning goals with four, Brown in power play goals with six, and had the second best scoring season by a defenseman in Brown history. The Hobey Baker Award candidate from Toronto, Ontario was named First Team All-American, First Team All-East, First Team All-ECAC, First Team All-Ivy, and the Ivy League Player of the Year in 1992. Brewer currently ranks fifth on Brown's all-time assists list with 84. He is one of only 18 players in Brown history to crack the 100-point career mark, finishing his years on College Hill with 113 points.
