What I’ve learned so far…by LA Kings captain Dustin Brown

Our new ‘What I’ve learned…’ series has already brought forth a myriad of mixed information.

Drew Doughty shared who was ‘one of the best passers I’ve seen’ (and it wasn’t Anze Kopitar), Kevin Westgarth may be man crushing on one of the new Kings forwards, Trent Hunter spoke about being mesmerized by somebody who can do amazing things with the puck, and Ethan Moreau let the world know which one of his teammates has been talking his ear off on the bus.

However, it was a comment by Westgarth – where he called captain Dustin Brown a nerd – that serves as the backdrop for today’s article.

First though, here are some things Brown says he’s learned over the first month of the season…

About Willie Mitchell – “What have I learned new about Willie Mitchell? Not much. He talks so much it’s…(then Kopitar chipped in and reminded him of something) – he knows a lot of people. He has a lot of friends. Every city we go to, he has a friend, apparently.”

About Simon Gagne – “I learned that he and Joe Bernier are really good friends.”

About Jack Johnson – “I think he got a new car. I don’t really know. Some red car I think I’ve seen him driving around in.”

About Justin Williams – “With Stick, you get to know him pretty well. So, there’s nothing really new to learn about him.”

About Moreau – “I’ve played against him and known him off the ice for quite some time. But, one thing, and not in any specific way, it’s been fun to be around him off the ice. He’s a pretty funny guy.”

About Kyle Clifford – “Cliffy is the same ol’ Cliffy, pretty simple.”

About Jonathan Quick – “Other than he’s the new record holder, not much – that’s about it with him.”

About Rob Scuderi – “I can’t give you anything on him. I carpool with him and live right next to him. So, we know each other too well.”

In response to Westgarth calling him a nerd – “I’d say I’m more of a geek. He’s more of a nerd. He corrects you on your pronunciations all the time and proper grammar. It’s a whole Princeton thing, I guess. So, I think he’s more or a nerd. I might be a geek, but he’s a nerd, that’s for sure!”

Brown went on to confirm at least part of what Westgarth had said though when asked if he had learned anything new about Alec Martinez recently – “He’s a geek. He and I have computer talk all the time. So, he’s a geek like me.”

The hardest hitting geek you’ll ever meet – LA Kings captain Dustin Brown.
