L.A. Kings Dustin Brown Finalist for NHL Foundation Award
The award recognizes an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community.
Brown has worked on behalf of various organizations such as KaBoom!, the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Newborn and Infant Critical Care Unit, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Children’s Cancer Research Fund, Make my Day Monday, and much more.
One of the highlights of Brown’s charitable work this season was hosting the McLeod family at STAPLES Center.
Will McLeod, 6, has leukemia.
The family got to go “behind-the-scenes,” watch practice, meet players, see a game, and more.
Also this season, Brown donated $50 for each of his fits to the Children’s Hospital L.A. NICU.
The other nominees are Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green and Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
The winner will be announced June 22.
