Dustin Brown, a two-time Stanley Cup champion and the Kings all-time leader in regular-season games played, announced his retirement from the NHL at the conclusion of the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
 
The Kings will hold a press conference tomorrow at Toyota Sports Performance Center in El Segundo. The press conference, which will feature Brown, Kings president Luc Robitaille, Kings general manager Rob Blake, and Kings head coach Todd McLellan, is set to begin at 11:30 a.m.

In his franchise-record 18th NHL season, Brown enters tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks having played in 1,295 regular-season games, the most ever by a King. Tonight’s game, Brown’s final regular-season appearance, is set for a 7:00 p.m. puck drop at Rogers Arena and will be broadcast on Bally Sports West.
 
From 2008-09 to 2015-16, Brown captained the Kings, an eight-year stretch highlighted by Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014. The 37-year-old is set to appear in his eighth Stanley Cup Playoffs after the Kings clinched a playoff berth following the Dallas Stars win over the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday.
 
Brown and the Kings will face the Edmonton Oilers in the first round of the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The schedule for the first round will be announced later by the NHL.
