Los Angeles Kings right winger Dustin Brown is off to a marvelous start to the 2017-18 National Hockey League regular season. In the first 17 games to the season, Brown is averaging a point per game as he has eight goals and nine assists for 17 points.

Never before has Brown averaged a point per game during the entire regular season. The most he has had in one year was 60 which he had in 78 games during the 2007-08 season. 

Brown's best game this season came on Oct. 21 in a 6-4 Kings win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. That night Brown had one goal and three assists for four points and was a plus-five with six shots on net. Brown is also a +8 with 52 shots on net and is being very responsible on the ice as he only has eight penalty minutes in 17 games. 

Brown is also currently on a three game point streak. In his last three games, he has two goals and two assists for four points. On Sunday, he was the lone Kings goal scorer in a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. 

The Kings next play at home at the Staples Center on Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks. For tickets to the 7:30 pm PT start, please click here.
