Brown (illness) will return to the Kings lineup on Monday.

Brown has missed the last four games with pneumonia but will play tonight vs. the Blue Jackets. Tyler Toffoli has played well since Brown got sick, so he’ll stay on the top line and Brown will skate with Jeff Carter. He has eight goals and 11 assists (19 points) in 39 games this season.

Brown (finger) will make his season debut on Sunday.

Brown is ready to return from a broken finger that he suffered in the preseason but he has to wait until Sunday because he is on LTIR. Brown said he would have been back on Tuesday if it wasn’t for LTIR, but fantasy owners will have to wait one more game before getting the rugged winger in their lineup.

Brown (finger) will travel on the Kings upcoming road-trip but is not eligible to come off of LTIR until Sunday.

The belief is that Brown will accompany the Kings on their road-trip and play Sunday in New York when he is first eligible to be activated. The Kings have struggled without Brown in the lineup and his return would bring some offence and physicality to the top-6.

Brown (chest) is on the ice for the Kings' gameday skate.

Brown was injured in Saturday's shutout win over the Panthers. Despite not immediately traveling with the team to Philadelphia, Brown joined the team on Sunday and visited with doctors Monday morning. Being at the morning skate suggests he got good news from the docs and should be in the lineup tonight vs. the Flyers.

Brown (chest) did not travel with the Kings following yesterday’s win but is currently en route to Philadelphia.

It is confirmed that Brown suffered a chest contusion during the second period of Los Angeles’ 4-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday. Brown is scheduled to see a doctor in Philadelphia on Monday morning, and there is no clear indication of whether the Kings’ captain will be available against the Flyers on Monday night.

Brown left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Brown headed into the locker room in the second period and did not return for the third period. He missed two games earlier in the week with a lower-body injury and illness, but now he is dealing with an upper-body injury. Consider him day-to-day until more details are known.

Dustin Brown will open the season on the Kings third line with Jarret Stoll and Trevor Lewis.

After missing the preseason with a hamstring injury, Brown has been bumped down to the third line because of Dwight King's impressive camp alongside Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams. The Kings like to roll all four lines so Brown will still see ample playing time on the third line. This move could be temporary as he works himself back into game shape after not playing in an exhibition game.

Dustin Brown skated on his own after practice for the first time since injuring his hamstring at the start of camp.

"He skated one day since the start of camp, and he’s not a guy that can just jump into a game," said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter "So if he doesn’t get any exhibition games, I’d say it’s highly unlikely that you’ve got a player that’s ready for the season." You do not like to hear this from coach Sutter, however Brown is not expected to miss an extensive period of time so his draft day value should remain the same.
