LOS ANGELES (AP) -Right wing Dustin Brown, playing his fourth NHL season at only 22, agreed to a six-year extension believed to be worth around $19 million with the Los Angeles Kings, putting him under contract through the 2013-14 season.
``Dustin is an integral part of what we are building here with the Kings,'' general manager Dean Lombardi said Friday. ``We like how he competes. We like his toughness and we are very pleased with how his overall game has developed.''
The Kings made Brown the 13th overall selection in the 2003 draft. He made his NHL debut at 18 in the 2003-04 season, becoming the fifth-youngest player to play for the team, and played in 31 games for Los Angeles that season.
Brown has four goals and four assists in 11 games this season, and 36 goals and 51 assists in 202 career games. He set career highs for goals (17), assists (14) and games (81) last season.
Brown has represented the United States at several international tournaments, including the 2006 World Championships, where he led his team in goals and points.
