Report: Bruins Among Teams Interested in Dustin Brown

Report: Bruins Among Teams Interested in Dustin BrownThe Los Angeles Kings made a splash on Thursday night when they acquired Jeff Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jack Johnson. It appears, however, that the Kings may not be done shaking things up.

Kings captain Dustin Brown is reportedly on the trading block, and the Bruins are among the teams who have interest in acquiring the forward, according to TSN insider Bob McKenzie. Of course, it must be mentioned that McKenzie also mentions the Sabres, Oilers, Devils, Rangers, Flyers, Maple Leafs and Canucks along with the Bruins has teams with "high levels of interest" in Brown.

It makes sense that there would be a ton of interest in Brown. He's still young at 27, and he has good goal-scoring capability. Brown has 17 goals this season, and he's scored no fewer than 24 goals over the last four seasons. He's also among the league leaders in hits every season.

Brown is also relatively cheap. He's signed through the 2013-14 season with just a $3.175 million cap hit per season for the duration of his current deal.
