Kings' Dustin Brown signs with Zurich Lions in Switzerland

In the midst of the ongoing NHL lockout, Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown has signed with the Zurich Lions in Switzerland, TSN's Darren Dreger reported Thursday via Twitter.

With the move, Brown goes from the NHL champion Kings to the Lions, who won the Swiss league title last season.

"Zurich was appealing for a number of reasons, including the city, the country and his familiarity with Marc Crawford as coach," Scott Norton, Brown's agent, told USA Today.

Norton said that Brown was hoping the lockout would get resolved, but there looks to be no end in sight, as reports emerged Wednesday that the Winter Classic is expected to be canceled.

"He kept holding off on offers hoping that the CBA would have been resolved by this point, and finally just decided that he wants to play the game he loves," Norton told the paper.

The 27-year-old Brown had 22 goals and 32 assists with the Kings last season.
