Kings’ Brown (hamstring injury) resumes skating

Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown distinguishes himself for throwing his body around* as much as the winger does for scoring goals, yet he’s been remarkably sturdy over the years. So far, his preseason is getting off to a bit of a rocky start with a tweaked hamstring, but it sounds like he’s doing better.

Brown, 28, hit the ice with the Kings for the first time since suffering that injury, the Los Angeles Times reports. The American forward didn’t answer questions about his progress, but Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said Brown “feels good.”

Still, he’s not expecting to play in Friday’s preseason contest and Saturday’s exhibition is up in question, too.

“We’ll see how he does the next two days,” Sutter said. “He doesn’t feel it. It’s not bothering him at all. It’s not so much that. He hasn’t had any contact since June. We’ll just kind of gauge it.”

Overall, things are going swimmingly for Brown, really. He’s healing up from that injury, will see a raise from that contract extension in 2014-15 and expects his fourth child to be born sometime Wednesday.

* – Critics might say “flopping around.”

    “Critics might say ‘flopping’ around” …

    Yes … and could such people possibly be French ? LOL ! :) Friends, I for one would like to know exactly who these ‘critics’ are ? For like you and many millions of others, God knows that we would waste ‘no’ time in relaying their positional coordinates to our glorious gun captains eh ? If ever there was an NHL captain who embodied the ‘greatness & virtue’ of Lord Horatio Nelson, then that would be none other than our very own, Captain Dustin Brown Esquire ! :) :) :)

    GO KINGS GO !!!!!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
