He was a plus-four as needless to say, none were on the power play. Doughty also led the team with 5:56 minutes on the power play. Doughty had 12 goals and 44 points last season. Look for more of the same this campaign from the blueliner.

Drew Doughty wants to spend his entire NHL career with the Los Angeles Kings.

Doughty, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 season, raised some eyebrows when he indicated he would consider playing elsewhere for a chance to win the Stanley Cup again. "My one comment, 'I don't care where I play. I just want to win [Stanley] Cups.' That is true. I just want to win Cups," he said. "When I said that, it didn't mean I didn't want to do it in L.A. The bottom line is all I care about is Cups. I don't want to win a Cup anywhere else but L.A. That's the bottom line."

Drew Doughty, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 season, says the most important thing for him is winning.

Doughty has won two Stanley Cups with the Kings, but he's obviously looking to add more rings to his collection. "I’d love to re-sign in L.A. But if our team isn’t going in the right direction… I want to win Cups. I don’t give a s— where I play. I just want to win Cups, and that’s the bottom line." That's an interesting statement coming from Doughty. He certainly mentioned the part about enjoying being in Los Angeles, but also hinted at a possible divorce if they don't get their act together. It'll be interesting to see how this all unfolds over the next months/years.

Drew Doughty sees a significant downside in playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Doughty grew up in London, Ontario and he only has two seasons left on his contract with Los Angeles, so naturally there's some Leafs fans that hope he might end up with Toronto in a couple years time. Don't expect that to happen though. "I think all of us Southern Ontario players, we secretly want to play for the Leafs," Dought said. But he added, "But I think it just always comes down to how hard it is to live in a city being that big of a celebrity. I’m spoiled in L.A., where I walk around anywhere I want and not one person’s going to recognize me. If, say, I did for some reason play for the Leafs, I don’t know if I could get used to that or not. I think that’s the problem, why guys don’t sign here."

Drew Doughty picked up an assist on the Kings' lone goal Saturday to extend his points streak to seven.

The blueliner now has 23 assists and 31 points in 52 games. The reigning Norris Trophy winner will have to climb a very steep hill to topple Brent Burns this season as Burns has been Bobby Orr-like (or close enough) but he is still having a nice season in his own right and should be active in all lineups.
