Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown appeared in the final preseason game, after missing training camp due to a hamstring injury on the first day. After that he hit the road for back-to-back games (which he stated was good because part of the reason is to shock the body) on Thursday and Friday. He took four shots but had no point in over 34 minutes and 41 seconds of total ice time against the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets.
Brown told reporters about his progress despite missing training camp, “I’m getting there. It really comes with playing games. I felt a lot better in Winnipeg than I did in Minnesota, and every game I’m sure I’ll feel better getting a couple days rest now. New York this week, and then Ottawa, I’m sure I’ll be right where I need to be. It’s just getting into games. The practices are one thing, but it’s the timing in the games, and my timing was a lot better in Winnipeg.”
In addition, Brown showed reporters his knee brace that he has been wearing as a result of the torn PCL that he played through during last season’s playoff run. Brown said if it was up to him the brace would be gone tomorrow, but they want him to wear it and he has to get used to it, he doesn’t like it but guesses it’s to protect himself.
