Dustin Brown sustained a broken finger in the second period of the last preseason game and he did not return to the ice.
Brown, who recently celebrated his 1000th game as a member of the LA Kings, will miss the first portion of the season due to the injury.
Brown, one of the few players to spend his entire 14-year career playing for the same team, is widely respected in the locker room.
In the 2017-18 season, he was voted by the team as the Most Inspirational Player for the second time and was the Kings' nominee for the Masterton Memorial Trophy.
"It's not good to lose one of your top guys," Drew Doughty said to The Athletic. "Brownie is a guy that is very very hard to replace. Both in the room and on the ice."

Last season he tallied a career-high 61 points and 33 assists, ranking second on the team in points and goals.
He was tied for most gamewinning goals with six goals and led the team with the nine power-play goals and three overtime goals.
