Dustin Brown will remain a King until 2022. Photo: Christine Cotter, L.A. Times Rejoice, Kings fans. The man who captained your team to their only Stanley Cup will now remain in Los Angeles until 2022. Dustin Brown, who had one year left on his current deal, inked an eight-year extension with the Kings today. Financial terms have yet to be disclosed. The No. 13 pick in the 2003 NHL Draft by Los Angeles, Brown has played his entire career with the Kings. Before last year’s lockout-shortened season held him to 18 in 46 games, he’d notched five-straight 20+ goal seasons, including a career-high 33 in 2007-08. For his career, Brown has 181 goals and 388 points in 641 NHL games. He’s held the Los Angeles captaincy since 2008, taking over from Rob Blake. In 2012, he captained Los Angeles to the first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history. Including Brown, the Kings now have seven key members from that Cup team inked to long-term deals. Goaltender Jonathan Quick, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner in 2012, signed a 10-year deal last year that will kick in at the start of the upcoming 2013-14 season. Defensemen Drew Doughty and Slava Voynov both signed extensions recently, Doughty’s an eight-year deal inked in 2012 and Voynov’s a six-year contract signed in June of 2013. Center Anze Kopitar is in the middle of a seven-year deal signed in 2009 that will keep him with Los Angeles until 2015. Forwards Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, both acquired in trades prior the Kings’ Cup run, each have long-term deals that they originally signed with Philadelphia that have now carried over to Los Angeles. Carter’s is for 11 years and runs until 2022; Richards’ 12-year deal keeps him under contract until 2020. While the Kings were unable to defend the Cup, falling in five games to the eventual champion Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final, they’ve got an incredibly strong core of four forwards, two defensemen and a goaltender who will keep them firmly in the Cup conversation for the foreseeable future.
