Dustin Brown scored twice in a 6-2 win over Arizona on Tuesday.
Both goals were softies with one goal from the neutral zone but the Kings' captain will take them anyway he can these days. He has seven goals on the year and 18 points in 50 games. Alec Martinez and Jake Muzzin each scored and added an assist while Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar each had two helpers in the win. Feb 3 - 1:29 AM

Dustin Brown scored only his fifth of the season Saturday as the Kings lost 3-2 in Arizona.

It has been a few seasons since Brown, who used to be a stud in fantasy hockey, has had any fantasy value and that has carried over to this season. He has 15 points in 47 games and could be in tough to match the 27 points he has managed in each of the last two seasons. Nick Shore, with his third of the season, also scored for Los Angeles.

Dustin Brown has just 14 points in 45 contests this season.

"I haven’t produced as much as I would have liked, but there’s other parts of my game that have been really good: The (penalty-kill) and the work aspects of that," Brown said. "We have a lot of guys that find ways to win games for us in different capacities. That’s kind of what our team’s about." He feels that one of his strengths is that he can play effectively on any line. Unfortunately it's been a few years now since he had a significant offensive season - at least by fantasy league standards - and he really should be looked at as a bottom-six forward. We don't anticipate him meaningfully picking up the pace offensively in the second half of the campaign.

Dustin Brown has nary a point in his last seven games.

Brown used to be a fantasy juggernaut but that is no longer the case. The veteran has 14 points in 43 games this season and he may not even be able to pick up the 27 points he has averaged over the last two seasons.

Dustin Brown scored and added two assists in the Kings' 5-2 win over Edmonton Tuesday.

It was Brown's first multi-point night of the season and it caps a pretty nice four game stretch for the Kings' Captain. Brown has five points in four games and now has 14 points in 36 games. He isn't really a fantasy relevant start these days but it looks like he may beat his 27 points he has averaged over the last two seasons. Trevor Lewis had an identical night to Brown with three points. Dwight King also picked up a goal and an assist as the Kings scored five goals in back-to-back games.

Dustin Brown registered an assist in a 5-3 loss to San Jose Tuesday night.

Brown has two goals and 10 points in 33 games this season. That's not good enough to warrant owning him in a standard league, but it's also not surprising given that he recorded just 27 points in each of his previous two campaigns. Unfortunately his days of being a relevant player in fantasy circles are well behind him.

The Los Angeles Kings are not getting secondary scoring from their bottom-six players.

The Kings have only five forwards with more than two goals more than a quarter of the way into the NHL season. Tyler Toffoli (11), Jeff Carter (10), Anze Kopitar and Milan Lucic (7 each) and Marian Gaborik (5) are the only forwards exceeding the deuce mark and Gaborik has needed three goals in his last three games to get to five. Dustin Brown, Nick Shore and Trevor Lewis each have two goals and the trio has combined for only seven assists so you can see it's a huge problem for the Kings.

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.

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.
