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. Dec 12 - 4:45 AM

Drew Doughty scored the overtime winner and added an assist in a 4-3 OT win over the Ottawa Senators Thursday.

In a battle between two high-flying defensemen, who may or may not be UFAs in 2019, Doughty came out on top scoring the overtime winner 32 seconds in. Doughty now has five goals and 24 points in 30 games this season.
Dec 8 - 1:37 AM

Drew Doughty posted three assists with a plus-2 rating and a hit in Tuesday's 5-2 win against the visiting Wild.

Doughty bounced back after a scoreless outing in Chicago on Sunday for his first three-point effort of the season. The rearguard has just two occasions where he hasn't scored in back-to-back games this season. He is on pace for a career-high 62 points, which would eclipse the 59 points he posted back in the 2009-10 campaign, his second full season in the NHL.

Drew Doughty suggested that he'll be seeking a contract that exceeds PK Subban's $9 million annual cap hit.

Doughty won the Norris Trophy in 2015-16 and he averages around 27 minutes per game, so it's no surprise that he expects a big payday when his current eight-year, $56 million contract expires in the summer of 2019. Still, it raises questions about how likely the Kings are to re-sign him. For what it's worth, Kings GM Rob Blake isn't worried about Doughty's talk about a contract becoming a distraction. "Not at all," Blake said. "I'm not worried about that. He's going to learn that he's going to be asked those questions, but he's a long way from being unrestricted. It's not like he's unrestricted here in a month."
Dec 1 - 7:01 AM

Monday's game against St. Louis will be the 700th contest of Drew Doughty's career.

"700 games is pretty crazy, and to be able to do it with the same team is even cooler," Doughty said. "It’s an exciting time for me, but when the puck drops, I won’t be thinking about that anymore. I’m just going out there to try and get a win. We’ve had a good road trip thus far, but it’s not over, and we’ve got to win tonight." The 27-year-old defender has accounted for 370 points in his career so far.
Oct 30 - 6:38 PM

Drew Doughty helped lead the Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Islanders on Sunday night.

A shorthanded, game-winning goal in the final match of the fantasy week surely helped owners too. Doughty is off to a red hot start with two goals and five points in five games. He's surpassed the 50-point barrier only twice in his career.
Oct 16 - 1:58 AM

Drew Doughty picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

The Kings scored three power play goals, the final one being the game-winning goal by Doughty. Kopitar won a clean faceoff to Martinez who tee'd up Doughty for his first goal of the season. Dustin Brown, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson also found the back of the net. Doughty has three points in four games this season.
Oct 15 - 1:28 AM

Drew Doughty was on the ice for all four Los Angeles goals Saturday.

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.
Oct 8 - 8:12 AM

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."
Sep 13 - 10:16 AM

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.
Sep 9 - 6:21 PM

The Los Angeles Kings kept four defensemen and four forwards in the expansion draft.

The group includes: Jeff Carter, Anze Kopitar, Tanner Pearson, Tyler Toffoli, Drew Doughty, Derek Forbort, Alec Martinez, Jake Muzzin and Jonathan Quick. Among those available are Brayden McNabb, Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown.

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."
