An All-American and Hobey Baker finalist his final two years at Bowling Green, Brian Hills is also one of the most prolific scorers in Falcon history. His last three years, he not only led the team in goals and total points, but was also named to the CCHA All-Academic team each year, and earning a spot as an Academic All-American his senior year as well.

Earning a spot on the All-CCHA second team his sophomore year, Hills made the first team his last two seasons, and was named CCHA Player of the Year in 1982-83. That season, he totalled 94 points overall, and 82 in CCHA games, both school records. He has the top two goal scoring marks in CCHA play, with 35 goals in 1982-83 and 28 in 1981-82. Hills' 116 goals fell two shy of the team record when he graduated, though his 270 total points edged the mark teammate George McPhee set the year before. He held both the points and assists (with Mark Wells) records, before they were broken by current record-holder Nelson Emerson in 1990. On January 15, 1982, he recorded seven assists against Ferris State, still a school best.

After graduating from Bowling Green, Hills spent 11 seasons playing professionally in Europe, where he played eight years in Switzerland and three seasons in Germany. He won three gold medals with Team Canada in Europe's Spengler Cup before returning to his alma mater, where he spent seven seasons as an assistant coach. He is currently an assistant coach at RIT under former Falcon teammate Wayne Wilson.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988.
