Fans Crown Winner in King of Kings Tournament

We started with 32 of the greatest players in LA Kings franchise history. Then, over a grueling month long competition that spanned five rounds, 30 individual matchups and nearly 50,000 votes by fans across multiple social media platforms, it all came down to two men…

And in capturing more than 60% of the total Final Round votes, Dustin Brown has been named the King of Kings.

To earn the ultimate crown, Brown not only had to defeat Luc Robitaille — a Hall of Famer and the greatest goal scorer to ever wear a Kings sweater — he previously had to advance past Jimmy Carson, Dave Taylor, Marcel Dionne, and Anze Kopitar.

That’s a rather hefty list, as it includes three players who have had their numbers retired by the Kings, two current Hall of Famers, and a future Hall of Hall of Famer.

On the other side of the bracket, Robitaille’s path to the final included wins over Steve Duchesne, Mattias Norstrom, Rob Blake, and Jonathan Quick (in one of the toughest battles of the entire tournament, with votes coming in at 52% to 48%).

In the Final Round, Brown’s margins of victories were as follows:

Twitter – 62% to 38%
Facebook – 67% to 33%
Instagram – 58% to 42%

Just a small sample of Dustin Brown’s accomplishments as a member of the Kings organization:

– First round NHL Draft pick
– AHL All Star
– NHL All Star
– 2x Stanley Cup Champion
– Tied for goal scoring lead in 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs
– Team captain (2008-2016)
– 2011 NHL Foundation Player Award
– 2014 Mark Messier Leadership Award
– All-time leader in Games Played (1,117+)
– Sixth all-time in Goals (282+)
– Eighth all-time in Points (618+)

And now, according to the fans, he’s the King of Kings.
