The Los Angeles Kings have announced an eight year contract extension with team captain Dustin Brown, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today. Brown, who has one year left on his current deal, will remain a King through the 2021-22 season. Brown, 28, has played his entire nine-year NHL career with the Kings and became the first player in team history to hoist the Stanley Cup when the Kings eliminated the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Final in June 2012. He’s been the club’s team captain since Oct. 8, 2008 (15th team captain in team history, only American-born team captain and youngest to ever wear the “C” in team history). During his NHL tenure with the Kings, Brown has accumulated 388 points (181-207=388) and 452 penalty minutes in 641 regular season games. Among the franchise all-time leaders he ranks eighth in games played, 10th in goals, 17th in assists, 12th in points, seventh in power play goals (69) and tied for seventh in game-winning goals (25). The 6-0, 212-pound native of Ithaca, N.Y. has also appeared in 50 postseason games with the Kings, recording 31 points (13-18=31), 54 penalty minutes and a plus-8 rating. Among the franchise all-time playoff leaders he ranks tied for seventh in games played, tied for eighth in goals, 13th in assists, tied for 11th in points, tied for fourth in plus-minus, tied for seventh in power play goals (five), tied for first in short-handed goals (two) and tied for fifth in game-winning goals (three). Brown, who was an NHL All-Star in 2009, has consistently been a league leader in hits throughout his career. From 2006-07 to 2011-12 Brown ranked either first, second or third in the league in hits, while ranking eighth in hits last season.
