Drew Doughty played over 30 minutes for the fifth time in the last six games.

Coach Darryl Sutter wants to limit Doughty's time on ice but decided to go with mostly five defensemen in the third and overtime periods as Jamie McBain saw only three shifts after the second stanza. Doughty picked up his eighth assist of the season on Saturday and now has nine points in 18 games.

Drew Doughty played over 30:00 in Los Angeles' 2-0 loss to Dallas on Thursday night.

The Kings were unable to muster any offense in this game. Drew Doughty led the Kings in shots (six) and in ice-time (30:57). Los Angeles was forced to role with five defensemen in the second half of this game because of an injury to Alec Martinez. The Kings have now lost two games in a row.

Drew Doughty got on the board as a goal scorer for the first time this season in the Kings 6-5 SO loss to the Ducks on Wednesday.

Doughty scored on a point shot late in the first period that got past Andersen through a screen. It wasn't pretty but we are happy to see him finally break the goose egg. Doughty has eight points in 16 games this season. Trevor Lewis, Justin Williams and Marion Gaborik also contributed goals in this wild high-scoring affair.

Drew Doughty might get a ton of playing time even by his standards on Saturday.

Robyn Regehr is hurt and questionable for Saturday's game and because of the Kings' unusual cap and roster situation stemming from Slava Voynov's indefinite suspension, they won't be able to call up a replacement if Regehr can't play. That means there's a real chance that Los Angeles will start Saturday's game with just five defensemen. Doughty is averaging 28:10 minutes per game as is, but the Kings might lean on him even heavier if they start the contest down a defenseman.

Drew Doughty loves playing against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Doughty has 224 career points in 449 games so he averages almost one point every two games. But against the Blue Jackets he has four goals and 20 points in 21 career games (including playoffs) so he is a good play today, especially in daily pools.

Drew Doughty played 30:47 against St. Louis on Thursday night's shootout win.

Statistically speaking, he contributed little else. Three giveaways, a block, a hit and a shot..but don't tell his teammates that. Doughty had yet another fantastic game.
Oct 17 - 2:03 AM

Drew Doughty collected two assists in Sunday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg.

Doughty was held off the scoresheet in Los Angeles' first two games. He's one of the league's best defensemen, but he's not as good from a fantasy perspective. He's a good bet to get around 40 points this season, but that probably won't be enough to get him into the top-10 in scoring among blueliners.
Oct 13 - 10:14 AM

Drew Doughty saw exactly 30 minutes of action on Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes.

Doughty was on the ice for 30 shifts averaging a minute per shift, which is pretty high in this day and age. Doughty led the way in power play time at 3:48 and had a plus-one and a couple of shots on goal. He managed to play 30 or more minutes on three occasions last year during the regular season. Look for a 40-45 point season out of the defenseman this year.

The Los Angeles Kings want to have a better opener following their banner ceremony than they did last time.

When the won the Stanley Cup in 2012, they opened the following season with a 5-2 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks. "Last time we didn't play well at all, and we know that we can't do that again," Drew Doughty said. "Teammates in here, we're not going to let that happen, and the coaching staff won't let that happen, so we have a new approach to this game." The Kings are looking to defend their championship, but as good as they are, that's a daunting task. The last team to win back-to-back championships was the Detroit Red Wings in 1997-98.

Drew Doughty (upper body) got into his first preseason game on Tuesday.

Doughty had a power-play goal and logged 22:55 minutes of ice time. "I felt good physically and mentally, and it was a good game by the whole team," Doughty said. The fact that he's missed a fair chunk of the Kings' preseason games shouldn't have an impact on his performance this season.
Oct 1 - 8:25 AM

Drew Doughty (upper body) is ready to return to the Kings lineup.

Kings' coach Darryl Sutter said that Doughty is ready to play, but that he wouldn't be in the lineup on Sunday against the Ducks. Doughty registered 10 goals and 37 points last season. He has the potential to top those numbers this season.
Sep 28 - 3:45 PM

Drew Doughty (upper body) is getting close to returning to action.

Doughty suffered the injury during on-ice training over the summer. "It's not that bad," Doughty said. "It was frustrating when I wasn't skating and all the guys were skating in camp and I wasn't able to partake in that. That's when it was really bothering me. But missing exhibition games, as much as I'd like to get in a few to kind of get in my groove again, as long as I get two or three, I'll be fine, so I'm not too worried about it." Look for Doughty to be ready for the start of the season and get 40-45 points this season.
