Pics, video and comments from Dustin Brown’s Zurich debut

Dustin Brown LA Kings ZSC Lions debut MayorsManorLA Kings captain Dustin Brown made his debut in the Swiss League earlier today. Before leaving for Zurich last Wednesday he told us it was time to play some more competitive hockey – rather than just continuing to practice in LA during the ongoing NHL lockout.

Upon arriving in Switzerland late last week, he immediately remarked to the media waiting for him at the airport that he needed to speak with ZSC Lions coach Marc Crawford.  Brown wanted some guidance on the rules and clarification on what he could and couldn’t get away with over there, as it relates to his highly physical style of play.

Wearing jersey #32, Brown skated on a line with Jeff Tambellini (who, like Brown, was drafted by the Kings during the first round of the 2003 NHL Draft) and Andres Ambühl for game one today.

Here’s some rough video of a goal he scored early in the second period to give his team a 3-1 lead…

Despite the goal, Zug won the contest 5-3. Their fifth goal was scored by Detroit Red Wings star Henrik Zetterberg while Brown sat in the penalty box.

After the game, Brown told local reporters – “It was hard for me to see the game. I have not played for a very long time.”  He also mentioned that the cross-check he was called for earlier in the game wouldn’t have been a penalty in the NHL.

A few hours later, Brown checked in with MayorsManor and noted he felt “pretty good for first game.”

As for the style of play that him concerned a few days ago, he now tells us “It’s a bit slower, so there’s more time to make plays due to the ice size.”

Game two for Brown and the Lions will be against Logan Couture and Genève-Servette on Friday.
