Drew Doughty posted two assists with a plus-1 rating, six shots on goal and five blocked shots over 30:49 of ice time Tuesday in Arizona.

Normally Alec Martinez is the blocked shot extraordinaire, as he is second in the NHL in the category with 175. However, tonight the All-Star rearguard was in a mood to sacrifice his body, upping his total to 107. Doughty and Derek Forbort are the only players to start the season with Los Angeles and log at least 100 hits and at least 100 blocked shots.

Drew Doughty scored a goal in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Doughty's goal cut St. Louis' lead to 2-1 at the 13:13 mark of the second period, but that's as close as the Kings would come to tying the game. The Kings blue liner finished the game with a minus-4 rating and four shots on goal in 25:41 of ice time. The 28-year-old has nine goals and 45 points in 68 games this season. Dustin Brown also found the back of the net for the Kings on Saturday night.

Drew Doughty regrets taking an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Saturday.

Doughty was charged for hooking and got very vocal about his disagreement with the call while in the penalty box, to the point where he ended up getting the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. That was Doughty's fourth unsportsmanlike conduct penalty of the 2017-18 campaign, so it has been an ongoing issue for him. Doughty admitted on Monday that it can be hard for him to hold his tongue when he disagrees with a call. "Obviously, I kind of do it all the time, so it’s kind of been a repetitive thing that I’ve been trying to fix and, yeah, obviously, I wish I didn’t do it," Doughty said. He went on to say that he should stay on an even keel regardless of what he thinks of the call.
Mar 6 - 5:39 AM

Drew Doughty picked up a pair of assists with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and two hits across 27:11 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-2 win against the Oilers.

The All-Star is averaging a point-per-game since the All-Star break, posting a goal with three assists in four outings. He also has a goal with nine points over the past seven contests. After a slow start this season he is making up for lost time and suddenly on track to come close to his career high of 59 points set during the 2009-10 season.
Feb 8 - 2:08 AM

Drew Doughty posted a goal with two blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 3-0 win at Dallas.

The All-Star rearguard is working on a four-game point streak, which is a season high. He has posted a goal with six points during the impressive span. After a slow start by his standards the All-Star is now on pace for 59 points, which would be his most since he posted 64 points during the 2013-14 season.
Jan 30 - 11:44 PM

Drew Doughty posted two assists with a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win at Calgary.

The rearguard also chipped in with a blocked shot, three hits and a pair of minor penalties across 27:47 of ice time. There's something about seeing those Flames sweaters that gets him going, as he has four helpers in three games against Calgary this season. He'll get one more crack against them in the regular season at Staples Center on March 26.
Jan 25 - 1:10 AM

Drew Doughty registered an assist in the Kings' 4-3 loss to Calgary Thursday night.

Doughty has only been held off the scoresheet in one of his last four games. He's up to seven goals and 30 points in 41 contests in 2017-18. That puts him in a three-way tie for third place in the blueliner scoring race.
Jan 5 - 5:19 AM

Drew Doughty did not score any points in Tuesday's game at Edmonton, but he was able to block five shots while dishing out three hits in the 5-0 win.

Doughty left the game briefly after a jarring hit, and he was not on the bench to start the third period. It appears he was being checked for a head injury, cleared protocol and was able to join the team to finish out the game. It appears safe to keep him in the active fantasy lineup in all leagues allowing daily transactions.
Jan 3 - 12:36 AM

Doughty has 28 points in 39 games and is definitely in the conversation for the Norris Trophy at this time.

Drew Doughty isn't concerning himself with whether or not the Kings have won over critics with their success.

Los Angeles wasn't a favorite of many going into the season, but the Kings hold a 20-8-3 record and is red hot with its eight-game winning streak. Still, that's led to questions about how legitimate a contender they are. "Yeah, you know, obviously, people are still going to doubt us," Doughty said. "There’s always going to be people who don’t believe in the success we’re having, but we’re not too worried about those other people. We believe in each other in here and we know that what we’ve done isn’t by mistake and it’s come through hard work and improving every single day." The Kings do have another noteworthy test ahead of them. Their next four games are on the road against New Jersey, the Rangers, the Islanders, and Philadelphia. With the exception of the Flyers, all of those teams have winning records so far and even Philadelphia has been looking tougher lately thanks to its three-game winning streak.
