Drew Doughty is urging against complacency in light of the Kings' commanding lead in the Pacific Division.

Los Angeles has a 10-point edge on the second place San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks in the battle for the Pacific Division title. "The standings show we’re playing better than them, but there’s so much that can happen," Doughty said, referring to the Pacific Division race. "There are almost 40 games left or whatever it is. … You can never be comfortable. All those other guys, all those other teams, are going to want to catch us and they’ll do whatever it takes." That's true of course and the Kings only need to look to Montreal to see how quickly things can fall apart. The Kings will play in divisional games this weekend against Arizona (Saturday) and San Jose (Sunday).

Drew Doughty had an assist in a 4-2 victory over Detroit on Monday.

Doughty has seven goals and 25 points in 42 games in 2015-16. That puts him roughly in line with his showing of 46 points last season and it wouldn't be at all surprising if he maintains his current offensive pace.

Drew Doughty recorded an assist in a 5-0 victory against Vancouver on Monday.

Drew Doughty played 'only' 26:42 on Saturday.

We say only because it was the first time in nine games that the Kings rearguard has played less than 29 minutes. It didn't help that the Kings did not have a power play opportunity all night. Doughty has four goals and 17 points in 29 games with a plus-12 rating as well as 22 minutes in penalties. He is a must-start.

Drew Doughty recorded an assist in a 4-3 defeat to Carolina.

With a laser of a goal on Thursday, Drew Doughty now has a three-game points streak.

The goal was a classic ripper from the point off a set faceoff play, and tied the game at one. It was his only shot of the game, but he did also contribute a minor penalty and three hits during his 25:42 of play. Doughty now has two goals and 11 points this season, and has points in seven of his last 10 games.

Drew Doughty recorded two assists in a 3-2 win over the Oilers on Sunday.

He assisted on Jeff Carter’s first period goal, and Tanner Pearson’s third period eventual game winner on the powerplay. Doughty also finished the game a plus-2, with two shots on goal. He has now recorded four points in eight games. He is an elite NHL defenseman and must be started in all formats.

Drew Doughty recorded an assist in the Kings' 4-1 win over San Jose on Thursday.

Doughty has two points in six games this season. He's a better player than he is fantasy asset, but he's certainly not lacking in either regard. While his start has been less than ideal from an offensive production perspective, he's still a good bet to surpass the 40-point mark.

Drew Doughty had an assist in Los Angeles' 5-1 loss to San Jose on Wednesday.

Doughty also logged 27:23 minutes of ice time in the season opener. It will be interesting to see if he continues to be leaned on that heavily as he predicted back in September that he would probably average 24 to 25 minutes per game this season. It's worth emphasizing though that he was predicting what was likely to happen, but not what he wanted to happen. He averaged 28:59 minutes per contest in 2014-15.

Drew Doughty has been maturing on the ice.

The 25-year-old (boy it seems that he is a lot older than that) used to argue with referees all the time but has matured of late. "I used to just yell a lot at the refs, and sometimes I still will," the star Kings defenseman said. "I just kind of snap sometimes, but I think I’ve done a lot better than I’ve done in the past. I definitely try to be more friendly with them on the ice. The refs are all great guys, they really are. They’re not out there to hurt you or to help the other team, they’re just doing their job, and sometimes you just take it the wrong way and get upset, and I’ve learned to kind of deal with that. If I do get upset, I’m definitely going to go apologize that next shift. Yeah, I’m getting on a better side at the refs, and that’s a good start to becoming a better leader, too." Doughty is a better hockey player than fantasy one but his 46 point effort last season propelled him to a top-15 fantasy defenseman. Draft him accordingly.
