Kings' Doughty Good To Go Wednesday

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) is practicing fully and has declared himself ready to play Wednesday against the Sharks, LAKingsInsider.com's Jon Rosen reports. "I know I'm good to go," Doughty said. "I don't need [battle drills] to test my strength or anything like that."
Analysis: With coach Darryl Sutter echoing Drew Doughty's sentiments in declaring his team "a hundred percent" healthy, it's safe to assume the defenseman will be available for his usual minutes in Game 1. He last played Apr. 3 after suffering an upper-body injury in a game against the Sharks, of all teams. Doughty finished the 2013-14 season with 10 goals, 27 assists and a plus-18 rating over 78 games.

Kings' Doughty Could Return Saturday

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) could return for Saturday's game against the Ducks, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.
Analysis: Drew Doughty has missed the last three games, but there is a chance he could return for the Kings' season finale Saturday. A decision on whether or not he plays will ultimately be made by head coach Darryl Sutter.

Kings' Doughty Iffy For Wednesday

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) remained on the ice for extra work Wednesday, suggesting that he'll likely sit out the team's evening tilt against the Flames, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: We'll await confirmation of Drew Doughty's Wednesday status, but with the playoffs around the corner, it wouldn't surprise us if the Kings played it safe with the blueliner, with the postseason in mind.

Kings' Doughty Travels But Return Uncertain

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) is traveling with the team, but his status for Wednesday's game is still uncertain, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The Kings play on back-to-back nights starting Wednesday, but Drew Doughty's status remains uncertain. The Kings have very little to play for in the final three games of the regular season, so don't be alarmed if Doughty is kept on the shelf until the playoffs as a precaution.

Drew Doughty

Kings' Doughty Practices Lightly

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) didn't participate fully in Monday's practice, NHL.com's Curtis Zupke reports.
Analysis: The Kings haven't commented on Drew Doughty's status for the remaining three regular-season games, but it wouldn't be surprise if he sat out, as the team's playoff spot in the Western Conference is more or less solidified. Doughty will be reassessed during Wednesday's morning skate before the team determines whether he can play later that night against the Flames.

Doughty Sits In Kings' Loss

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) did not play Saturday, but remains day-to-day, reports LA Kings Insider.
Analysis: The Kings don't play again until Wednesday, so it wasn't surprising to see them rest Drew Doughty for another game to make sure he's healthy. Look for them to be cautious with Doughty, with an eye toward having him ready for the playoffs.

Kings' Doughty Doesn't Skate Saturday Morning

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) did not take part in Saturday's morning skate, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Drew Doughty hasn't officially been ruled out for Saturday's game, but he's not a good bet to play. While his injury isn't thought to be particularly serious, the Kings have minimal incentive to rush their best blueliner back.

Kings' Doughty Uncertain For Saturday

News: Drew Doughty (upper body) didn't practice Friday but has not been ruled out for Saturday's game, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: It would seem unlikely that Drew Doughty is able to lace up the skates Saturday given that the Kings have already clinched a playoff spot, but he's still traveling with the team. Consider him day-to-day but don't be alarmed if the Kings decide to take extra caution here.

Kings' Doughty Likely Avoids Major Injury

News: Kings coach Daryl Sutter said Friday that Drew Doughty's upper-body injury is not serious, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Sutter's comment is encouraging, but it sounds like the team is still gathering information, as LA Kings Insider's Jon Rosen said the Kings are "guardedly optimistic" that the injury will not be long-term. The star defenseman apparently did not see a doctor Friday, and while the early signs are encouraging, the Kings are essentially locked into the No. 6 seed and thus have no reason to rush Drew Doughty back.

Kings' Doughty Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Drew Doughty left Thursday's game in the first period with an apparent upper-body injury, according to NBC Sports Network's game broadcast.
Analysis: Drew Doughty appeared to hurt his left shoulder, but the Kings have yet to provide any information on the injury. If at all serious, this could be a massive loss for the Kings. Doughty did not come out for the second period, indicating that he's unlikely to return.

Kings' Doughty Picks Up Power-Play Goal

News: Drew Doughty scored up his 10th goal of the season on a power play against Phoenix on Wednesday.
Analysis: Drew Doughty has struggled at times since the Olympic break, with just six points in 16 games and just three points in his last 10. He has just three points on the power play since the start of February.

Doughty Dishes Two Helpers As Kings Lose

News: Drew Doughty collected primary assists on Marian Gaborik's early-first-period goal and Anze Kopitar's late-first-period power-play marker Thursday, but that turned out to be the extent of the Kings' offense in a 3-2 loss to Toronto.
Analysis: Following a cold stretch -- just a single assist in six games -- since the post-Olympic resumption of play, Drew Doughty's picked up three helpers in the last two games and seems to be getting things back on track. Fantasy owners in leagues that count hits have to be happy that he didn't let up with the physicality even when he wasn't scoring -- he's dished out 22 hots in nine games since the break.

Kings' Doughty Delivers Game-Winner For Canada

News: Drew Doughty supplied both of Canada's goals -- including the game-winner in overtime -- as Canada dispatched Finland by a 2-1 count on Sunday.
Analysis: Drew Doughty earned his roster spot for Canada mostly by virtue of his excellent work on the back end, but he's been a surprising offensive contributor for the team thus far. The Kings blueliner now has four goals in three Olympic games for Canada despite lighting the lamp just eight times in 59 games for his NHL club.

Kings' Doughty Snaps Goalless Streak

News: Drew Doughty potted his eighth goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: It was Drew Doughty's first goal since Jan. 11, snapping his string of 11 games without finding the net. Doughty has not been immune to the Kings' collective decline of late, as he mustered only one assist in addition to the lack of goals in the previous seven games before Monday's tilt.

Doughty Logs Seventh Goal In LA's Loss

News: Drew Doughty scored on a Los Angeles power play and was whistled for two penalty minutes in the Kings' 3-1 loss to Detroit on Saturday night.
Analysis: At 7-17-24 in 46 games, he remains on pace to post about a 40-point season, assuming he stays healthy. That's a solid offensive contribution from the blue line, always a valuable asset in leagues with positional requirements.

Doughty Scores In Kings' Road Loss

News: Drew Doughty scored a game-tying goal in the third period of Wednesday's game against San Jose, but the Sharks went on to win in a shootout. It's his fifth marker of the season.
Analysis: He's on a pace for around 40 points, which makes him one of the better offensive-minded rearguards in the league -- not a truly elite scorer, but well worth having in reasonably deep leagues.

Kings' Doughty Grabs Two Helpers

News: Drew Doughty dished out a pair of assists and went plus-3 Tuesday in a win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: As Drew Doughty goes, so go the Kings -- in their 15 wins, he's got 11 points, while in their seven losses, he's got just one.

Kings' Doughty Shakes Off Early-Season Slump

News: Drew Doughty picked up his fourth goal of the season and added an assist in a 4-3 win over the Sharks on Wednesday.
Analysis: Drew Doughty had just one point in the first eight games of the season, but now has six point in his last six games, including three on the power play. He's regaining his status as a go-to fantasy defenseman.

LA's Doughty Ends Dry Spell

News: Drew Doughty registered a goal and a power-play assist in Saturday night's win over the Stars. The points are his first since Opening Night.
Analysis: There are signs of concern about his scoring, with Exhibit A being this seven-game drought. He's still a long way from his meteoric sophomore campaign four seasons ago. But at just 23 years old, he's far too young to be washed up.

Kings' Doughty Nets Power-Play Goal In Opener

News: Drew Doughty notched his first goal of the season Thursday, a power-play tally in a 3-2 win over the Wild.
Analysis: Drew Doughty's numbers have dropped in recent years in large part to his lack of power-play production. If he can recapture some of those numbers, he could see a bounce-back season.

L.A.'s Doughty: Bad Ankle

News: Drew Doughty's performance in the Western Conference final was affected by an ankle injury, according to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times.
Analysis: Dillman's first report indicated that he suffered the injury against San Jose, but she followed up with another tweet to say it actually happened in the series against St. Louis. He now has plenty of time to rehab.

Doughty Grabs Goal In Kings' Win

News: Drew Doughty scored Los Angeles' first goal in Friday's 2-1, Game 6 victory over St. Louis that booked the Kings a spot in the second round.
Analysis: Drew Doughty finished the six-game series with a point in each of the last two games as Los Angeles erased a 2-0 series deficit by winning the next four contests. Doughty's regular season numbers weren't poor, but owners were expecting more. Odds are Doughty will be a factor at both ends of the ice for however long the Kings continue their Cup defense.

Doughty Leads LA Past Anaheim

News: Drew Doughty collected a goal and a power-play assist Saturday in the Kings' 2-1 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: At 5-15-20 in 42 games, he's well off the pace of his spectacular sophomore campaign three years ago (59 points). But as rearguards go, he adds enough offense for you to keep him active while waiting for the chance of a burst of productivity.

Kings' Doughty Notches First Goal Of Season

News: Drew Doughty scored his first goal of the season in a 3-2 win over Phoenix on Tuesday.
Analysis: Drew Doughty's been a pretty big disappointment this season after last year's playoff run, but hopefully the tally is a sign of better times ahead.

Kings' Doughty Has Two Helpers In Win

News: Drew Doughty had two helpers Tuesday in a 6-4 win over the Blues.
Analysis: Drew Doughty has yet to light the lamp this season, but does have 10 assists. After his impressive playoff performance last season, it was thought that Doughty might be one of the top fantasy blueliners in the game this year, and while he's been reasonably productive, he hasn't lived up to the hype.
