LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings have signed winger Dustin Brown to a six-year contract extension.
"Dustin is an integral part of what we are building here with the Kings," Kings GM Dean Lombardi said in a statement. "We like how he competes; we like his toughness; and we are very pleased with how his overall game has developed."
Brown, 22, was chosen 13th overall by the Kings in the 2003 NHL entry draft. He has eight points (4-4) in 11 games this season. Last year he recorded a career-high 46 points (17-29) in 81 games.
