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.
Brown was named as the Kings’ captain on October 8, 2008. The fifteenth captain in franchise history, Brown, 23, is also the youngest captain and the first American-born captain in Kings’ history.
Dustin Brown has recently been best known for injuring Finnish player Jussi Jokinen by a hit towards his head nearing the end of a game in IIHWC 2008.
