Playing career

Brown was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the first round, thirteenth overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. His first NHL game was October 9, 2003 against the Detroit Red Wings.

Dustin Brown was brought up early, after coming from Guelph, but clearly was not ready for play in the NHL. He bounced back and forth between Manchester and Los Angeles until finally he cemented a place on the team for himself in the NHL during the 05–06 NHL season, mostly as a checking line forward. The next season saw a remarkable expansion in his roles, being placed on the scoring line with Anže Kopitar. 2007–08 would prove to be a breakout season, with Dustin Brown posting new highs in goals and points, leading the Kings with 33 goals.

On October 26, 2007, the Kings and Brown agreed to a six-year, $19.05 million contract extension that will keep him with the team until the 2014–2015 NHL season.[2]

During the World Championship tournament of 2008, Dustin Brown received negative attention for intentionally injuring Finnish player Jussi Jokinen by aiming a hit towards his head after the end of a game.[3]

Brown was named as the Kings’ captain on October 8, 2008.[4] The fifteenth captain in franchise history, Brown, who was 23 at the time he was appointed captain, is the youngest captain and the first American-born captain in Kings’ history.[4]

Brown got his 100th NHL goal on January 14, 2010 against the Anaheim Ducks.[5]

Personal life

Brown was born in Ithaca, New York. Brown and his wife, Nicole, welcomed their first child Jake Austin Brown on February 6, 2008. Their second child, Mason Cole Brown, was born on February 23, 2009.
