Kings captain Brown selected for Messier Award

Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown was chosen as the 2014 recipient of the Mark Messier Leadership Award.

The award recognizes an individual as a superior leader in hockey and as a contributing member of society. It honors an individual who leads by positive example through on-ice performance, motivation of team members and a dedication to community activities and charitable causes.

Brown has spent his entire 10-year NHL career with the Kings, serving as their captain for the past six seasons. Known for his physical style of play, he donates $50 per hit to a different charity each campaign.

The 29-year-old native of upstate New York selected Children's Hospital Los Angeles' Newborn and Infant Critical Care Unit. Prior to that, he and his wife partnered with the nonprofit KaBOOM! to raise $70,000 and build a new playground in Carson, California, that now hosts more than 100 kids per day.

Brown has been a finalist each of the last two years. He was chosen ahead of Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf and Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews.
