Dustin Brown signs in Swiss league
Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown is the latest big name NHLer to sign overseas, as he announced on Thursday that he will be joining the ZSC Lions in Switzerland.
Brown will be heading over to Zurich on November 7 and expects to play his first game for the Lions on November 13. He'll be reunited with Marc Crawford who was the Kings coach from 2006-2008 and took over in Zurich earlier this year.
The 27 year old posted 54 points in 82 games during the 2011-12 season before scoring 20 points in 20 playoff games to lead the Kings to their first ever Stanley Cup win. He has served as the captain in Los Angeles since 2008.
