Statistics only partially show the impact some hockey players have on their teams. Brown is one of those players.
Selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the first round (No. 13) of the 2003 NHL Draft, the Ithaca, N.Y., native is a hard-charging right wing with scoring punch who is also an off-ice leader. In 2008-09 he was the youngest player (23) and first American to be named captain of the Kings, and he became the second United States-born captain to lift the Stanley Cup when Los Angeles won its first title in 2012 (Derian Hatcher did it with the Dallas Stars in 1999). Brown helped lead the Kings to a second title in 2014.
