Kings forward Dustin Brown named as alternate captain for U.S. Olympic team

USA Hockey announced Friday that Dustin captain Dustin Brown would be alternate captain for the Sochi Games next month. Brown and Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild will wear the A’s on their sweaters and Suter’s teammate Zach Parise will be the Team USA captain. It was mildly surprising that David Backes of the St. Louis Blues was not named to one of the three leadership positions. Brown has had a difficult season for the struggling Kings, with only 16 points, including 10 goals.
