Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dustin Brown
Dustin Brown was born November 4, 1984 in Ithaca, New York. The first round, 13th overall selection of the Los Angeles Kings in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Brown is a graduate of the OHL's Guelph Storm.

An offensively gifted forward, Brown played three seasons with the Storm tallying 204 points (108-96-204) before making his professional debut in 2003-04. In his first season with the Kings, the Ithaca, New York native tallied five points (1-4-5) in 31 games and was a member the United States bronze medal team that competed at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.

During the NHL lockout, Brown spent the next year of his professional hockey career competing in the AHL with the Kings AHL affiliate in Manchester. When the league returned to action, Brown would become a regular in the Kings' line-up and notch 28 points on a team rich with prospects. Over the next pair of seasons, Brown's offensive output would increase incrementally and after a career-high 60-point year, he was named captain of the Los Angeles Kings just prior to the start of 2008-09 season.

His high-scoring, hard-hitting and strong work ethic in Los Angeles did not go unnoticed. In February of 2010, Brown was part of the US Olympic team that brought home the silver medal in a thrilling overtime final at the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

The 2011-12 season would end in fairytale fashion for Brown and his Kings teammates. After storming through the Western Conference playoffs, losing only twice along the way, the Kings beat out to the New Jersey Devils to win the first Stanley Cup in Los Angeles franchise history. In doing so, Brown became only the second American-born captain to lead his team to the Stanley Cup title.
