    The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to an eight-year contract extension with Dustin Brown that will keep the team captain around through the 2021-22 season.

    Brown's deal is worth $47 million, an annual rate of $5.875 million, a source tells ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun.

    Brown had one year left on his current deal. He joins nine other Kings who have been signed to long-term deals, including Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Quick, Mike Richards and Jarret Stoll.

    The Kings also announced Thursday that Rob Blake has been hired as an assistant general manager for the team with which he starred for 14 seasons as its career leader in goals, assists and points by a defenseman.

    Bad move. You don't give a player that kind of contract unless they are Wayne F*cking Gretzky
