Drew Doughty provided one assist and scored a goal as the Los Angeles Kings lost a 6-4 contest to the Dallas Stars Monday night.

It appeared Doughty would be the Kings’ savior at the 5:18 minute mark of the third. On the heels of a Dustin Brown goal 2:16 into the period and Anze Kopitar’s 4:20 score, Doughty sunk the puck during a power-play to tie the game and precipitate a goalie change from Kari Lehtonen to Antti Niemi. The Stars answered with two more goals before the game was in the books, however. Doughty’s assist came on the Kings’ first goal, which was scored by Nick Shore at the 15:05 minute mark of the second.

Drew Doughty passed Mark Hardy for second place all-time in assists among Kings defensemen during Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.

Doughty picked up two helpers in the contest, giving him 20 points in 40 games this season. He sits just 11 assists behind Jim Fox and Dustin Brown for 10th all-time in assist in franchise history; forward or defender.
Jan 7 - 7:57 PM

Drew Doughty played in his 200th straight game on Thursday.

Los Angeles has had some significant injury problems this season, but fortunately Doughty hasn't been sidelined. He hasn't just stayed healthy over the last 200 Kings games, he's also gotten a consistently heavy workload. He's averaging 27:06 minutes per game, which is actually less than he got in 2015-16 (28:01) or 2014-15 (28:00).

Drew Doughty registered an assist in the Kings' 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus on Tuesday.

Doughty has five goals and 17 points in 32 games this season. He probably won't match his 2015-16 total of 51 points, but he's a good bet to at least reach the 40-point mark for the third straight campaign.

Drew Doughty had an assist in Los Angeles' 4-1 win over Detroit Thursday night.

Doughty has recorded at least a point in four of his last five games. He has five goals and 16 points in 29 contests this season.

Drew Doughty is fine to play Tuesday versus Buffalo.

He sustained a minor injury after an awkward fall Saturday against Ottawa. Doughty also left practice early on Sunday, but he is ready to play.

Drew Doughty did not practice with the Kings Sunday.

No need to worry as the defenseman apparently skated before practice. Coach Darryl Sutter said that he was a bit banged up as was a few other Kings. He will play Tuesday when the Kings travel to Buffalo. Doughty has 15 points in 27 games and is on a roll after a poor start to the season.

Drew Doughty is heating up.

He picked up an assist during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Senators. He now has two goals and four points over his last three games. With 10 helpers and 15 points in 27 games this season, it looks like he's turning it around.

Drew Doughty scored the lone goal in the Kings' 3-1 loss to Carolina on Thursday.

That's goals in back-to-back games for the reigning Norris trophy winner. He has 14 points in 26 games for Los Angeles. He's an elite option on the backend again this season and will be back in the trophy conversation if he stays healthy.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 05:14:00 AM

Drew Doughty has seven points in his last seven games.

The reigning Norris Trophy winner got off to a slow start this season with six points in his first 18 games but has picked up the pace significantly of late. He has four goals and 13 points thus far and should be in someone's fantasy lineup.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 08:24:00 AM

Drew Doughty now has points in three of his last five games.

Thanks the goal and assist he netted during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal, that is. The reigning Norris Trophy winner is up to four goals and 13 points in 25 games thus far.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 06:42:00 PM

Drew Doughty is on a four game points streak after an assist Saturday.

Doughty has only 11 points this season so even with the current points streak the 2016 Norris Trophy winner is still well behind his pace of last season when he had 14 goals and 51 points. He should get to the 40-45 point mark this season with anything else being a bonus.

Drew Doughty led the Los Angeles Kings in shots on goal Saturday night, but he and the remainder of the team were unable to sink any in the 1-0 loss to the St Louis Blues.

Doughty has not been particularly productive with two goals and two assists on 24 shots this year. The scoreless Kings snapped a four-game winning streak after starting the season 0-3 and that means Sunday night’s contest against the Blackhawks is going to be pivotal to see if they can regain their momentum.

Drew Doughty scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to the Flyers on Friday.

Doughty finished as the game's third star, recording one goal and four shots on goal in 27 minutes of action. He is one of the premier defensemen in the NHL and should always be in your fantasy lineups. Brayden McNabb also scored for the Kings.
