Brown hurt ankle Nov. 29

LOS ANGELES -- The injury-riddled Los Angeles Kings got a bit healthier Saturday when they activated rookie right wing Dustin Brown from injured reserve.

Selected 13th overall in last year's draft, Brown suffered a
sprained ankle Nov. 29 in a 3-1 victory over Chicago. The
19-year old, who has one goal and two assists in 21 games,
missed 26 contests.

The return of Brown is more than welcome for the Kings, who are
without top forwards Jason Allison, Adam Deadmarsh, Ziggy Palffy
and Martin Straka due to injuries.
