– Los Angeles Kings
right wing Dustin Brown
will serve as Kings captain for the 2008-09 season, Kings head coach Terry Murray
announced Wednesday. Murray has also named center Anze Kopitar
and defenseman Matt Greene
as assistant captains. The announcement was made exclusively on LAKings.com.
“Dustin has impressed me a great deal with his leadership,” said Murray. “He comes to the rink each day prepared and his on-ice work shows a great deal of focus. He has total commitment to this team.
“Anze is a high-performance player not only on this team but in our League. He shows great leadership through his effort and the way he plays the game. Matt is very vocal and he is energetic on the bench, on the ice and in the locker room. His tough, gritty work in the defensive zone is also a great example for all of our players.
“This was a difficult decision to make as we have a lot of quality candidates, but we, as an organization, are excited about the three players selected, and we believe they will help lead our club both now and in the future.”
