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 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.
Brown (illness/lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

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.
After making his preseason debut last night, Brown should be ready to go in the Kings season opener on Wednesday.
Brown is really consistent and should be in for another mid-50 point season.
Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown plans on playing in the October 3rd season opener vs. Minnesota.
"If you asked me today, 'Will I be playing in Minnesota?' - Yeah," said Brown. He has not played during the preseason because of a hamstring injury.
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.
Kings sign Dustin Brown to 8-year, $47-million extension
The right-winger joined goaltender Jonathan Quick, defencemen Drew Doughty and Slava Voynov and forwards Mike Richards and Jeff Carter as players signed for at least the next six seasons. Brown is, in many ways, the Kings’ identity. The 28-year-old right-winger’s aggressive forecheck led the way during the 2012 Stanley Cup run, when he was a point-a-game player.
Brown has been suspended two games for his hit on Minnesota Wild forward Jason Pominville.
Brown delievered a hard elbow to Pominville's head in the second period of yesterday's contest. Pomnville left the game and did not return. He is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Brown will miss the Kings last two games, tonight vs. Detroit and Saturday vs. San Jose. Tyler Toffoli was recalled today and could replace Brown in the Kings lineup.
Confirming that Dustin Brown will indeed have a hearing today for his elbow on Jason Pominville. Kings play in Detroit tonight.
Brown elbowed Pominville in the second period last night and Pominville did not return to the game. We'll have to wait and see if he gets suspended later this afternoon.
Brown, back from the flu, is moved to the second line. The team's captain has 13 goals and 29 points in 59 games.
