Kings captain Dustin Brown has agreed to an eight-year contract extension, the club announced today.

According to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, the deal — a front-loaded one that Brown apparently negotiated himself — is worth $47 million total, garnering a cap hit of $5.875 million.

Brown, 28, still has one year left on his current contract, at a bargain cap hit of $3.175 million. The eight-year extension runs through the 2021-22 season.

Drafted 13th overall by Los Angeles in 2003, Brown has 388 points in 641 career NHL games and was a major contributor to his team’s Stanley Cup championship in 2012, scoring 20 points in 20 playoff games.

Dustin Brown's #LAKings contract breakdown: $7.25M, $7.25M, $7M, $6.5M, $5.5M, $5.5M, $4M and $4M.—
