Dustin Brown took issue with his one-game suspension.

Brown is being punished for kneeing Tampa Bay's Mikhail Sergachev on Saturday. "No one knows what’s fair anymore," Brown said. "I mean, I saw it differently than they did. They thought I stuck my knee out. I felt like I was going through and he’s sidestepping me. So I hit him with my knee, yeah but it was the result of him making a move laterally when I’m trying to deliver a hit." Regardless, he can't play on Tuesday, but will return on Thursday.

Dustin Brown has a hearing scheduled for his hit on Justin Schultz.

That's not surprising. Schultz was already on his knees when Brown smashed him into the boards Thursday night. Brown got a boarding major and a game misconduct as a result of the incident, but he disagreed with the call. "I’m going to close on him," Brown said. "He stumbles, toe picks. I don’t drive through the wall or anything but I also close in on the play. At most it’s probably a two [minute penalty]. I hope he’s OK."

Dustin Brown might end up facing supplemental discipline for a hit he delivered to Justin Schultz Thursday night.

Brown smashed Schultz into the boards while Schultz was already down on his knees. That led to Brown getting a boarding major and a game misconduct. It's possible that he might also end up getting suspended over that hit, but for his part, Brown feels that he's already been punished too much over what happened. "I’m going to close on him," Brown said. "He stumbles, toe picks. I don’t drive through the wall or anything but I also close in on the play. At most it’s probably a two [minute penalty]. I hope he’s OK."

Dustin Brown has now scored more goals than the Kings than Wayne Gretzky did during his tenure with Los Angeles.

Gretzky moves to eighth place on the Kings' all-time goals list with 246 while Dustin Brown, who has spent his full 1,004-game NHL career with Los Angeles, now stands at 247. Brown would have gotten to this point a lot quicker, but he endured four straight weak offensive seasons before bouncing back in a huge way in 2017-18. After scoring two goals on Tuesday, Brown has 15 goals and 31 points in 40 contests this season.
Jan 3 - 6:54 AM

Dustin Brown scored a pair of goals, including a tally on the power play, while finishing with a plus-1 rating, a blocked shot and a hit in Tuesday's dominating 5-0 win in Edmonton.

The only thing that didn't go right for Brown in this one is that he was 0-for-2 in the faceoff circle. The New York native needed this type of performance after closing out 2017 with a three-game pointless skid, and just one goal and three points in his previous nine outings. He also struck on the power play for the first time since Nov. 12.
Jan 3 - 12:33 AM

Dustin Brown scored the overtime winner in a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Thursday.

Brown scored the game-winning goal 44 seconds into overtime in his 1,000th career NHL game. The other Kings' goal scorer was Alec Martinez, who tied the game in the third. Brown has played all of his 1,000 games with the Los Angeles Kings. The forward has 13 goals and 29 points in 36 games this year.

Dustin Brown is set to play in his 1,000th career game on Thursday.

Brown will become one of the 18 active players to have reached that milestone. "It’s one of those things you don’t really think about when you’re playing," said Brown on reaching the milestone. "But now that it’s kind of here, you definitely think about what it means to myself and everyone I’ve played with, and the organization." What makes things better for him is the fact that this season has been something of a comeback campaign. After four disappointing campaigns in terms of offensive production, Brown has scored 12 goals and 28 points in 35 contests in 2017-18.

Dustin Brown is only two games away from playing in his 1,000th NHL game.

This is regular season of course as Brown has played in 81 post-season games. He is having a comeback season with 12 goals and 27 points in 34 games this season after 36 points last season and four years in the high 20's. Brown is also a plus-13 and has been a valuable addition to plenty of fantasy leagues as he should not have been taken in too many drafts before the start of the season.

Dustin Brown is on a three-game point streak.

Over his previous four seasons, Brown recorded between 27 and 36 points each campaign, making his resurgence in 2017-18 a very pleasant surprise. He's shown no signs of slowing down either.
