Drew Doughty (upper body) will be available for Game 1 on Thursday.
Doughty took part in Tuesday's practice, although the skate didn't include any battle drills. "I've known I'm good to go," Doughty said. "I don't need [battle drills] to test my strength or anything like that. But it'd maybe a good idea to get in a few just to kind of get into a game situations kind of thing. I'm sure they'll have some planned for me coming up here before game one." He missed the Kings' final four regular season games due to the ailment. Apr 16 - 9:42 AM

Drew Doughty's (upper body) preference would be to return before the playoffs.

Doughty will miss his second straight game on Wednesday. "It's important to get a game under you — if you can — just before playoffs," Doughty said. "Even just taking a game off, you kind of lose it. Sometimes that first or second shift is a difference maker. If you're slacking at one point during that shift, they could score a goal and that could be the winner. Ideally, if I could get in a game before the playoffs, that'd be great." The Kings have two games left in their schedule after Wednesday's contest.

Consider him day-to-day.

If Drew Doughty has a regret regarding the 2014 Winter Olympics, it's that he didn't score on his Los Angeles Kings teammate, Jonathan Quick.

Doughty was representing Canada while Quick played for the U.S. in the nation's semifinals matchup. "I remember there were a few chances I had on Quickie, and he made the save, and we kind of just had a big smile back to each other," Doughty said. "I was chirping him a little bit. But it was just all in fun. I really wanted to score on him, and I'm disappointed I didn't." Doughty is happy with his performance in the Olympics and obviously it had a happy end for him given that Canada won gold.
