Drew Doughty had two assists in the Kings' 5-3 victory Thursday night.

Doughty had gone six straight games without recording a point. He's one of the best defensemen in the league, but from a purely offensive standpoint there are significantly better options out there. Still, his 15 points in 29 contests is nothing to sneeze at.
Dec 12 - 10:27 AM

Drew Doughty played only 28:09 minutes on Saturday after playing over 30 minutes in seven of his previous 10 games.

It must have seemed like a night off for the workhorse. Doughty has been playing too much and since he played only 25:36 on Wednesday, coach Darryl Sutter is trying to keep him refreshed as there is still a long way to go in the season.

Drew Doughty saw his five-game point streak come to an end on Wednesday.

Doughty had a goal and four assists during his point streak. On the plus side, he logged 25:36 minutes on Wednesday, making it one of the rare times he spent less than 30 minutes on the ice in recently. Usually less ice time would be bad news, but he expressed a desire to cut back on his shift length and his ice time was so high that him burning out was becoming a long-term concern.

Drew Doughty set a new season-high by logging 33:40 minutes Tuesday night.

That's after Doughty expressed a desire to reduce his shift length from an average going into Tuesday's contest of 53 seconds to 50. His average shift length on Tuesday was a little over a minute...so, not what he was looking for. He ranks second in the league with an average of 29:10 minutes per game this season.

Drew Doughty might start playing a little less.

Doughty wants to reduce the length of his shifts from 53 seconds to roughly 50 seconds, which would reduce his per game workload by about a minute and a half. He's logged over 30 minutes in seven of his last nine games, so it seems reasonable to reduce that rather than risk him being burnt out by the time the playoffs start.
Nov 25 - 10:39 AM

Drew Doughty played 33:07 minutes on Saturday as he surpassed the 30 minute mark for the seventh time in the last nine games.

Doughty also extended his points streak to four games in a row as he picked up an assist. The defenseman now as a goal and 12 points in 21 games this season and is second in time on ice in the NHL to Ryan Suter as he is averaging 28:58, trailing the Wild defenseman by 21 seconds per game.

Drew Doughty extended his point streak to three games on Thursday.

Doughty has a goal and 11 points in 20 contests in 2014-15. He ranks second in the league with an average of 28:45 minutes per game.
Nov 21 - 11:00 AM

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.
Nov 14 - 1:12 AM

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.
Nov 13 - 2:38 AM

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.
Nov 8 - 10:29 AM

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.
