[1]LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to an eight-year contract extension with Dustin Brown that will keep the team captain around through the 2021-22 season.

Brown had one year left on his current deal. He joins nine other Kings who have been signed to long-term deals, including Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Quick, Mike Richards and Jarret Stoll.

The Kings also announced Thursday that Rob Blake has been hired as an assistant general manager [2] for the team with which he starred for 14 seasons as its career leader in goals, assists and points by a defenseman.

Brown has played his entire nine-year NHL career with the Kings, helping them win their first Stanley Cup in 2012. He is the team’s only American-born captain, a position he’s held since October 2008.
