The Kings have locked up their future. On the same day the Kings announced Rob Blake as assistant GM, the team locked up captain Dustin Brown with an eight-year extension. Brown will remain a King through the 2021-22 season, Kings presidentgeneral manager Dean Lombardi announced on Thursday. 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 team captain since 2008 (15th team captain in team history) and is the only American-born team captain and youngest to ever wear the "C" in team history. While a member of the Kings, Brown has accumulated 388 points (181-207=388) and 452 penalty minutes in 641 regular season games. Brown 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-foot, 212-pound native of Ithaca, N.Y. has also appeared in 50 postseason games with the Kings, recording 31 points. Brown, an NHL All-Star in 2009, was drafted by the Kings in the first round (13th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut in 2003 and at the time, was the fifth youngest player in Kings history to play in the NHL. Internationally, Brown has represented the United States several times, most recent at the 2010 Winter Olympics, where Team USA earned a silver medal.
