The Los Angeles Kings announced yesterday that they’ll be retiring Dustin Brown’s number 23 next year.

Brown spent his entire career with the Kings, from the time he was selected 13th overall in 2003. He played 1296 career NHL games, scoring 325 goals and 712 points, and retired at the end of the Kings’ playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers.

The forward won two Stanley Cups with the Kings in 2012 and 2014 and was also the team’s captain for eight years between 2008 and 2016.

Brown’s jersey will be retired ahead of a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on February 11. A statue will also be unveiled in his honour.
