Dustin Brown went top shelf over Cam Ward to get the Kings on the board Sunday, but they'd eventually fall to the Hurricanes 4-3.
It's been a difficult season for Brown, who broke his fourth pointless streak of at least three games of the season. He did however manage to land six hits with a block and a minor to go along with his second goal and seventh point of the season. Nov 22 - 5:01 PM

Dustin Brown found the back of the net for the first time this season in the Kings' 3-2 loss to Arizona on Tuesday.

After getting called out by the coach to play better, this was a nice response for the team captain who has points in three straight games. Still, it wasn't enough to help his team get the win. Brown has totaled six points in 15 games this season and does not seem destined to improve on 27 points per season average he has had in the last two years. Tyler Toffoli scored his tenth of the season in the losing cause and Drew Doughty picked up an assist.

Coach Darryl Sutter called out Dustin Brown Thursday morning to be better.

Sutter did it before the Kings-Blue Jackets game after Brown had gone pointless in his previous three games. "He hasn’t played really well lately," Sutter said of Brown. "We’re getting into regular-season performances. They’re based on not just this year, but over the last couple seasons. He needs to be a better player." Brown responded with an assist to give him four with nary a goal in 13 games. He is not the player he was a few seasons ago when he was considered one of the top power forwards in the game. He is not even close to being one of the best bottom-six forwards at this stage of his career.

Dustin Brown had an assist in the Kings' 2-1 win against Colorado on Sunday.

Brown has two assists in five contests this season. He recorded just 27 points in each of his last two campaigns and we're not betting on him rebounding in 2015-16.

Dustin Brown played in his 806th game as a member of the Los Angeles Kings.

And with game played, Brown moved past Rob Blake into fourth place among Kings in games played for the franchise. Brown used to be a fantasy gem but with 27 points in each of the last two seasons, he has become an non-entity in yearly and dynasty pools.

Dustin Brown replaced Milan Lucic on the top line in practice Saturday.

Brown found himself playing alongside Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik as Darryl Sutter mixed up his lines after losing the first two games of the season. Brown has struggled offensively the last two seasons with only 27 points apiece in each year. Perhaps he has one more good fantasy season in him but we would be wary of taking him in fantasy pools at this time.

Dustin Brown will reportedly not receive any supplemental discipline after headbutting Logan Couture on Wednesday.

Couture stayed in the game, although the incident left him bloodied. Brown also assisted on the Kings' lone goal in a 5-1 loss.

Dustin Brown had an assist in the Kings' 5-1 loss Wednesday night.

Brown is coming off of a season where he was limited to 11 goals and 27 points in 82 contests. In that campaign he only had one point in 11 October games, so anything more he does this month would be a step up from his 2014-15 production levels.
Oct 8 - 9:25 AM

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown says he's feeling better than he has in several years after improving his diet.

Brown, 30, has two straight 27-point seasons under his belt, less than he managed in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign (when he generated 29 points). Perhaps cleaner eating will help him get into position to start producing at a rate that makes his contract less regrettable?

Vice President of Hockey Operations for the Los Angeles Kings Mike Futa "will remain a Los Angeles King," according to GM Dean Lombardi.

Futa has been an essential part of LA's seemingly annual success at the NHL Entry Draft. He's overseen the likes of Drew Doughty, Alec Martinez, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson just to name a few, be greeted at the podium on draft day. "You don’t think the guy could jump ship now, right?" Lombardi queried facetiously as Futa has been a possible GM candidate for Toronto, Calgary, and Buffalo in recent years. "There’s a big challenge ahead of us," Lombardi continued. If nothing changes, the Kings hold the 13 overall pick in June's draft.

The LA Kings and Boston Bruins, the defending Cup champs and defending President Trophy winners, became a unique duo since 1968-69 to miss the playoffs

Not since the 1968-69 Montreal Canadiens, who captured both the Presidents Trophy and Stanley Cup, missed the playoffs entirely missed the playoffs the following season. While this isn't inherently indicative of things to come for LA and Boston, changes are expected to be coming their way.
Apr 12 - 5:40 PM

Dustin Brown is in a goal scoring slump as he has not scored since February 18.

That's a span of 18 games and he has only two assists in that time frame as well. Once, one of the best power forwards in the NHL, Brown has only 10 goals and 26 points this season and should not be on your fantasy radar at this time.
Mar 29 - 9:08 AM

Dustin Brown moved up to the first line in practice Friday.

Brown replaced Trevor Lewis alongside Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik and that can only help his fantasy value. Lewis was on the third unit with Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams. Brown has 10 goals and 24 points in 57 games this season but his minus-six rating does not help you if you play that category in your pool.
Feb 21 - 7:19 AM

Dustin Brown had two assists in a 3-2 loss to Florida Thursday night.

Brown has eight goals and 21 points in 51 contests in 2014-15. He's seen his offensive production substantially decline over the last couple of seasons, but he's at least worth keeping an eye on. The Kings are in danger of missing the playoffs and a desire to avoid that might spark Brown in the final months of the season.
Feb 6 - 9:47 AM

Dustin Brown feels that the Kings aren't playing with enough emotion.

Brown and the Kings suffered their ninth loss in 11 games on Tuesday. Brown's remarks were brought up in Kings coach Darryl Sutter's postgame press conference and he seemed to think the team captain should look in the mirror. "He did?" Sutter said when Brown's comments were brought up. "He made a bad change on the first goal." Sutter added that there's a lot more to the game than emotion.
