With Andrej Sekera acquired, look for Drew Doughty's playing time to go down.
Doughty has been averaging an unreal 29:27 minutes per contest in 2014-15 due in part to the fact that Slava Voynov has been serving an indefinite suspension. Sekera gives the Hurricanes a blueliner that can be trusted with over 20 minutes per game and consequently take a little bit of the pressure off of Doughty. Feb 26 - 9:23 AM

Drew Doughty had two assists in the Kings' 4-1 win over Colorado on Wednesday.

Doughty has five goals and 35 points in 57 contests in 2014-15. We still wouldn't bet on him reaching the 50-point mark this season, but he should at least come close.
Feb 19 - 10:25 AM

Drew Doughty scored for the first time in 14 games in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.

It was the blueliner's fifth goal of the season and he now has 31 points as he is headed towards his second best point performance of his career. Doughty had 59 points as a sophomore which got poolies talking about the next great fantasy defenseman but Doughty has hit the 40 point mark only once since then. He is a great defenseman but is only a pretty good fantasy blueliner despite the hype.

Drew Doughty says that there is no panic in the Kings' locker room.

If the playoffs started today, the defending champions would be on the outside looking in but that doesn't concern Doughty. "We're not ready to panic," Doughty said. "We have the sense of urgency, no doubt about it. And yet we're ready to start winning games to get back in that playoff race. We're not panicking. We're ready for this challenge and we're going to overcome it." The Kings are three points behind Calgary (with one game in-hand) for the final playoff spot in the West.

Drew Doughty thinks that this season is his best to date.

"I think my production, I’ve finally been getting some points, which I haven’t been getting since my second year in the league, but I’m playing well both ways," Doughty said. "I’m put in all situations, I’m more physical, I’m better defensively, just having more experience I just feel better on the ice. I’m making better plays with the puck, and without it. I feel like I’ve been playing my best." Doughty has four goals and 28 points and while he won't approach the 59 points he had in his second NHL season, this could be his second best offensive display.

Team Foligno assembled a pretty good group of defensemen during Friday's NHL All-Star game player draft.

Drew Doughty and Patrick Kane were Foligno's assistants, and they helped Nick Foligno make the draft selections. Joining Doughty on the blue line are Duncan Keith (CHI), Dustin Byfuglien (WPG), Brent Burns (SJ), Kevin Shattenkirk (STL), and Oliver Ekman-Larsson (ARZ) round out the top six. The NHL's skills competition will take place on Saturday night.

Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar were named to the All-Star game.

Doughty had a nice night fantasy-wise on Saturday as he had a couple of assists in a 5-4 loss to Winnipeg. He played 33:45, the second-most he has played all season in one game. Doughty is one of, if not the top defenseman in the NHL.

Drew Doughty wants to be used in shootout situations.

It's basically the only occasion that Doughty doesn't play in. "I want the game on my stick whenever it can be, to be on it," Doughty said. "I'm a defenseman, so maybe don't see me as a good shootout guy. But I feel like I can still put the puck in the net in those opportunities. I better score if I get that chance." Doughty hasn't gotten that chance this season and has only participated in eight shootouts in his career. He has scored in two of those chances.
Jan 8 - 9:22 AM

Drew Doughty logged 30:03 of the 60 minutes of play against Vancouver Thursday night, the Kings won 3-2 and he assisted on a late game-tying goal.

Playing 30 or more minutes has become commonplace for Doughty this season, having done so 18 of his career 26 times thus far. Nine of which have occurred through just regulation. Makes one wonder how he'd fare in an Iron Man race. He's averaging 32 shifts and 29:11 per game, well ahead of his teammates. His assist was his 19th of the season, raising his point total to 23.
Jan 2 - 1:57 AM

Drew Doughty found the net in the Kings' 3-2 shootout loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.

Doughty logged 31:59 of ice-time and tallied up four shots, three hits and a plus-1 as he led the way for a very flat Kings team. The superstar d-man has put up points in three of the last four games and now has 22 points in 38 games. Jake Muzzin forced overtime with his marker late the third period. Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Marian Gaborik each had one assist in the loss.

Drew Doughty scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-2 loss to Montreal.

Doughty participated in all of the Kings' offense tonight. Los Angeles did fire 46 pucks at Canadiens' goaltender Carey Price, but they were unable to put a goal on the board until Montreal jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Doughty has now put up two points in back-to-back games. The 25-year-old has three goals and 17 points in 30 games this season. He's currently on pace to surpass the 40-point mark for the third time in his career.

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.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 10:27:00 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.
