The season may have just started, but Dustin Brown is wasting no time. The forward scored his 300th career goal in the LA Kings season opener against the Minnesota Wild, doubling the Kings' lead at the time.

His goal came on the power play, giving him 97 career power-play tallies and becoming the sixth player in franchise history to hit that milestone.

Brown wasn't the only player to have a strong showing, as Jeff Carter tallied two points on the evening. His first-period tally allowed him to surpass Jim Fox (186) for sole possession of 11th place on the club's all-time goals list.

Andreas Athanasiou scored the team's third goal, but his first goal ever with the club.

The Kings will have an opportunity for revenge against the Wild Saturday night at 6 pm.
