Bruins Trade Rumors 2012: B's Interested In Kings Winger Dustin Brown

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the Boston Bruins are one of many teams involved in trade discussions with the Los Angeles Kings about acquiring right winger Dustin Brown before next week's NHL Trade Deadline.

With injuries plaguing right wingers Nathan Horton (concussion) and Rich Peverley (MCL) Brown could prove to be a solid acquisition for Boston. This year with the Kings, Brown has 14 goals and 17 assists in 61 games played with the Kings. He's no Rick Nash, but he could be a complementary piece the B's could add to one of their middle lines.

Los Angeles acquired forward Jeff Carter earlier this week, which could signify that Brown could be on his way out in L.A. If the price is right, the Bruins could snag the winger without giving up to much in terms of their current players.
