Dustin Brown: Finalist For NHL Foundation Award

On April 27, Kings right wing and team captain Dustin Brown was named as a finalist for the 12th Annual National Hockey League Foundation Player Award.

This is the second consecutive year Brown has been nominated.

The winner will be announced on Wednesday, June 23, during the 2010 NHL Awards. Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller and Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green are the other two finalists.
