Doughty Points Twice In Kings' Loss

News: Drew Doughty scored a power-play goal and dished out a power-play assist Tuesday in a 4-2 loss to Edmonton. He ended up minus-2 on the evening.
Analysis: Drew Doughty's been producing offense pretty inconsistently of late -- over the last nine games, he's got seven scoreless efforts and a pair of two-point nights. It adds up to a solid on-paper season, but Doughty's not currently in any danger of rekindling last season's hype machine that had some calling him the NHL's best player during the playoffs. Heck, the Kings are now looking at somewhat long odds just to make the postseason this year.

Kings' Doughty Snaps 24-Game Goal Drought

News: Drew Doughty scored for the first time in 24 games and chipped in a power-play assist while going plus-3 Thursday in an 8-2 win over Edmonton.
Analysis: Drew Doughty's tally was just his second goal in his last 39 games, and he still doesn't have a power-play goal this season. But he does have a respectable 43 points -- his highest total since 2009-10.

Kings' Doughty: Three Assists In Last Four

News: Drew Doughty recorded an assist, but went minus-3 in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Drew Doughty has notched three assists in his last four games, though a minus-5 rating during that stretch has put a damper on that production. He's still sitting at plus-1 overall for the season, so there's not much reason to think Doughty will be a risk in that department going forward. Fantasy owners should probably have more concerned about Doughty's goal drought, which was extended to 19 games Saturday. He has found the net net just once over his last 34 contests.

Kings' Doughty Helps Out In Win

News: Drew Doughty dished out a pair of helpers and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Edmonton.
Analysis: A much-needed good outing for Drew Doughty, who showed up on the defensive side of the box score too, blocking five shots (his highest total since Feb. 12). He'd been cold in recent days, with just a lonely assist and a minus-2 rating over five games coming in, but you can't keep him down for too long.

Drew Doughty, D, LA Two Assists For Kings' Doughty

Drew Doughty

Two Assists For Kings' Doughty

News: Drew Doughty handed out two helpers and skated to a plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Drew Doughty now has four points in his last three games and 35 in 57 contests this season. He's an absolute beast on the back end for the Kings as well, spending an average of 29:26 on ice, including a game-high 4:59 on the man advantage in this one. Already in his seventh NHL season, the 25-year-old is having his best campaign in some time, although he would still need a miracle to top his career-best 59-point explosion from 2009-10 as a sophomore.

Kings' Doughty Nabs Assist In Loss

News: Drew Doughty recorded an assist and four shot attempts in 29:10 of ice time in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Drew Doughty failed to record a single goal in January, despite putting up 32 shot attempts in 12 games. He was able to save face by picking up eight assists during the month, and his strong shot totals bode well for his chances of ending the goalless streak in the near future.

Drew Doughty

Kings' Doughty Has Three-Game Assist Streak

News: Drew Doughty picked up an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Devils.
Analysis: The blueliner has gathered at least one helper in three consecutive games, continuing what has been another impressive season. While Drew Doughty will probably never reach the 59-point total he hit during his second season in the league, he's still unquestionably one of the more valuable defenseman in both real-life and fantasy terms.

Kings' Doughty Adds To Assist Total

News: Drew Doughty collected a pair of helpers and logged a whopping 33:45 of ice time in Saturday's shootout loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Saturday marked the fourth time in five games Drew Doughty has logged over 30:00 of ice time. The 25-year-old has been on a tear of late, recording 13 points (two goals) in his last 14 games. On pace for 50 points, Doughty is a must-start every game.

Kings' Doughty Picks Up Assist

News: Drew Doughty registered an assist in his 28:43 of ice time in Saturday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Predators.
Analysis: The good times keep rolling for Drew Doughty, despite taking a minus-2 rating in the loss. He's recorded at least a point in all put three of his last 12 games, making him a no-brainer in any fantasy lineup.

Kings' Doughty Gets Goal, Clears 30-Minute Mark

News: Drew Doughty nabbed his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: Drew Doughty ended Ben Scrivens' shutout bid midway through the third period, getting a shot from the point just under the crossbar to get the Kings on the board. With the game heading to overtime, Doughty was able to rack up 31:59 of ice time, marking the 17th time he's cleared the 30-minute barrier this season. His 29:10 average TOI ranks second in the NHL this season, trailing only the Wild's Ryan Suter (29:40).

Kings' Doughty Scores Third Of Season

News: Drew Doughty scored his third goal of the season, added an assist, picked up two PIM, and was credited with five shots on goal in Friday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: That's back-to-back two points outings for Drew Doughty, who is now up to 17 points in 30 games on the season. Averaging a whopping 28:47 of ice time, Doughty is on track to reach the 50-point mark for the first time in six years. With 79 shots on goal, 24 PIM, and a plus-5 rating, Doughty is once again proving to be an all-around great fantasy option on the blueline. He is a must-start every night Los Angeles is in action.

Kings' Doughty Ends Slump With Two Assists

News: Drew Doughty picked up an even-strength assist and a power-play assist in Thursday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: It wasn't his best game, as he finished with just an even rating despite the productivity and was charged with two giveaways, but Drew Doughty snapped a six-game pointless drought with this performance, which has to have his fantasy owners breathing a sign of relief.

11/26/2014

Drew Doughty, D, LA Kings' Doughty Extends Point Streak

Drew Doughty

Kings' Doughty Extends Point Streak

News: Drew Doughty netted an unassisted goal in Tuesday's loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Drew Doughty saw a whopping 33:40 of action in the win, the sixth time in seven games that he's gone over the 30-minute mark. It's hard to argue with coach Darryl Sutter's decision to increase the rearguard's ice time, as he's now tallied a point in five consecutive games and has racked up seven points over his last seven contests.

Kings' Doughty Notches Goal; Assist Wednesday

News: Drew Doughty found the back of the net and added a helper in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: He also spent a whopping 30:30 on the ice, firing three shots on goal in the process. For all of his real-world talent and skill, Drew Doughty doesn't make for the sexiest fantasy asset among the league's top defencemen, but his eight points, plus-three rating, and 39 shots in 16 games aren't anything to scoff at, either.

Drew Doughty

Kings' Doughty Helps Out In Loss

News: Drew Doughty registered an assist in Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Drew Doughty has yet to find twine on any of his 27 shot attempts this season, keeping him well off pace of reaching double-digits in goals for the fifth time in his brief career. He's still attempting shots at essentially the same rate (2.25 per game) as last season, so there's reason to think the goal drought can mostly be attributed to unfortunate luck.

Kings' Doughty Delivers Two-Assist Game

News: Drew Doughty assisted on two scores in Sunday's victory over the Jets.
Analysis: After being held without a point on only four shots in goal in his first two goals, Drew Doughty demonstrated his capabilities as an offensive threat Sunday. He doubled his shot total for the season with four attempts on goal, while also finishing with a plus-2 rating. Though Doughty is a solid two-way defenseman and an annual contender for the Norris Trophy, it's worth noting that he only had four multipoint games last season, which likely places him in a tier below fantasy blueline stalwarts Erik Karlsson and Shea Weber.

Kings' Doughty Scores In Return To Lineup

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) scored a power play goal and logged over 22 minutes of ice time in his first action of the preseason Tuesday.
Analysis: Drew Doughty had been held out with some sort of upper body injury sustained during offseason workouts shortly before training camp opened but had always remained confident that he'd be back in plenty of time for the regular season. He may not play in all of the remaining exhibition games but he's all set for the season opener.

Kings' Doughty Cleared To Return

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) has been medically cleared to return and figures to do so this week, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Drew Doughty could have played Sunday, but was held out of the lineup for another game. Look for him to return either Tuesday or Thursday.

Doughty Nearing A Return For Kings

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) hopes to return to preseason games soon, the LA Kings Insider reports. "Everything's good," he said. "No problems, so I'm good to go whenever."
Analysis: Drew Doughty may not return Sunday but figures to make his return shortly thereafter. This doesn't look like anything that will impact his availability for the regular season.

Kings' Doughty Gets In Full Practice

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) took part in a full practice Tuesday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Drew Doughty missed the first three days of training camp after sustaining the injury during offseason workouts, but was never a serious threat to miss the Kings' Oct. 8 season opener. The Kings still plan to sit the veteran blueliner during the first handful of exhibition games as a precaution, but he should get some action under his belt before the start of the season.

Kings' Doughty (Upper Body) Listed As Day-To-Day

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) is listed as day-to-day according to general manager Rob Blake, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Drew Doughty isn't currently participating in training camp due to an upper-body injury that he suffered while training in the offseason. Considering that the Kings don't kick off their season until Oct. 8, Doughty's chance of playing in the opener increased with this news.

Kings' Doughty Out For Start Of Camp

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) suffered an injury during the off season and will be held out to begin training camp, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: It's currently unclear as to how serious the injury is, however the report states he did skate some Wednesday, so it's likely not serious. Drew Doughty's status for the season opener will depend on when he can participate in training camp.

Doughty Back On Scoresheet In Kings' Win

News: Drew Doughty notched a primary assist on Marian Gaborik's game-tying, power-play goal in the third period of Friday's Cup-clinching Game 5 double-overtime win over the Rangers. He played 41:21 in the game, leading his team in ice time.
Analysis: Drew Doughty had just one point in the previous four games of the series, a beauty of a goal in Game 1, but he got on the board when it mattered. Doughty has further cemented his reputation this postseason as one of the league's preeminent two-way defenders and has already won two Stanley Cups as a 24-year old. He won't put up the gaudy statistics of an Erik Karlsson or P.K. Subban, but Doughty remains a prototype amongst defenders and will have more than his fair share of Norris Trophies by the time his career ends. Unless your league counts average-time-on-ice as a statistic, there are a handful of other, albeit less adept defenders, who will put up larger statistics than the Kings' leader. However, few are better on the ice than Doughty.

Doughty Busy In Kings' Loss

News: Drew Doughty scored a goal and assisted on another in Friday's 4-3 Game 6 loss to Chicago in the Western Conference finals, giving him six points in the last four games.
Analysis: Los Angeles is faced with a Game 7 after losing the last two tilts and its 3-1 series deficit, but Drew Doughty has been doing his part with a goal in three of the last four games, including nine shots on goal in Wednesday's Game 5 loss, logging 39:04 in the overtime contest.

Kings' Doughty Active In Game 5 Loss

News: Drew Doughty logged a game-high 39:04 TOI and nine shots on goal in Wednesday's Game 5 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Though Drew Doughty didn't register any points in the Kings' 5-4 defeat, he was perhaps the most important contributor of any defenseman in the game. In addition to the nine shots, Doughty also supplied two hits, four blocks, and two penalty minutes while finishing with a plus-2 rating.
