Brown selected as NHL Foundation Award finalist
Kings captain Dustin Brown has been named as a finalist for the NHL Foundation Player Award, which annually “recognizes an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey — commitment, perseverance and teamwork — to enrich the lines of people in his community.” Brown has been nominated for the award for three consecutive years, and the winner will be announced at the NHL Awards on June 22 in Las Vegas. Washington’s Mike Green and Vancouver’s Daniel and Henrik Sedin are the other finalists. Brown has done extensive work with charitable organizations, including partnerships with Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, the KaBOOM! project for playground-building, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and the Kings’ Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Night, among other works.
