LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Kings have reportedly told Dustin Brown he will no longer be the team’s captain.
TSN Senior Hockey reporter Frank Seravalli broke the news on Twitter Friday, saying Brown has been told he will no longer wear the “C” for the team.
Brown, who’s worn the “C” on his jersey for eight seasons, captained the Kings to Stanley Cup victories in both 2012 and 2014.
Failing to hit 30 points in a single season since the team’s Cup vicotory in 2011-12, the former 50-point scorer has only been seeing a steady decline in statistics over the years.
Although Brown’s demotion from captain might not come as a shock to many Kings’ fans, it’s interesting to consider who will become his replacement.
