The Celebrated Kings United Kingdom The Winner: Byron Dafoe The Other Candidates: Kevin Brown Yes, there were, in fact, a few Los Angeles Kings from the United Kingdom. Born in Birmingham, England, Brown played a total of 30 games for the Kings over the span of two seasons in the mid-1990s. However, the winger was predominantly a journeyman that spent a large portion of his career in both the AHL, IHL, and ECHL. Therefore, he is not taking home the U.K. crown.
