Description: Kings defensman Drew Doughty is a solid two-way player who can also add decent scoring to your fantasy lineup.
Insight: The 24-year-old posted just 37 points in 2013-14, but we see improvement in 2014-15. And you have to love his big plus/minus numbers. He's only posted 40 or more points one time, but we think he cracks it this season.
 
5/24/2014 11:02:00 PM
Description: Drew Doughty scored his second goal of the playoffs Saturday in a win over Chicago.
Insight: Doughty also added an assist. His goal 11 minutes and 57 seconds into the third period ended up being the difference maker. The 24-year-old now has 13 goals in 67 postseason appearances.
 
4/16/2014 11:41:00 AM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty (shoulder) has been given a clean bill of health going into the postseason, according to lakingsinsider.com.
Insight: Doughty last played on April 3 and finished the season with 10 goals, 27 assists, 177 SOG, 64 PIM and a +18 rating. He participated fully in practice and will play in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Sharks. "I've known I'm good to go," Doughty said.
 
4/12/2014 2:40:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against Anaheim.
Insight: Doughty (10 G, 27 A) last played on April 3, but is fantasy worthy when healthy.
 
4/10/2014 9:10:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty (shoulder) is not expected to play Thursday against Edmonton, according to Oilers announcer Jack Michaels.
Insight: Doughty (10 G, 27 A) last played on April 3 and wasn't spotted during pre-game warmups Thursday.
 
4/9/2014 4:26:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty (shoulder) is not expected to play Wednesday, according to Jon Rosen of lakingsinsider.com.
Insight: Doughty (10 G, 27 A) last played on April 3. The Kings want to have him healthy for the playoffs.
 
3/27/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty had his first goal since Feb. 3 Thursday against the Penguins.
Insight: The 24-year-old has nine goals, 36 points, 64 PIM, 172 SOG and a +17 rating in 74 games, so he's been a solid fantasy option on the blue line.
 
11/28/2013 12:23:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty scored his first goal since Oct. 30 Wednesday at San Jose.
Insight: Doughty found the net on just six of his 114 SOG (.053) in 48 games last season, but he already has five goals on 68 SOG (.074) in 26 games this season.
 
10/3/2013 10:55:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty scored a goal in Los Angeles' season opener Thursday against Minnesota.
Insight: Doughty didn't score his first goal until his 29th game last season after producing an average of 12 goals per season from 2009-12, but he notched five goals in the final month of the season and got off to a good start Thursday.
 
4/6/2013 6:54:00 PM
Description: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty scored his second goal of the season Saturday against Edmonton.
Insight: It has been a lackluster season for Doughty, as he didn't score his first goal until March 19. He has also had to work hard to get his plus/minus out of the red after he started out with a -10 over his first 10 games, but he is now a +2 for the season.
 
11/23/2011 6:27:00 PM
Description: Drew Doughty was fined $2500 for a cross-check on T.J. Oshie during Tuesday's game. TSN
Insight: Brendan Shanahan obviously felt that a two-minute cross-checking penalty was enough on the play, which Blues fans and many others who observed the incident will disagree with. At least Doughty owners don't have to worry about sitting him out.
 
10/29/2011 4:43:00 PM
Description: Drew Doughty is expected to return to the Kings' lineup for Saturday's game against Phoenix after missing the past two weeks with a shoulder injury. ESPN
Insight: Rookie defenseman Slava Voynov will likely be sent back to the AHL to make way for Doughty. Be sure to activate the high-scoring defenseman for Saturday and for next week.
 
10/16/2011 1:22:00 AM
Description: Drew Doughty is expected to miss the next 7-10 days with an upper-body injury from Saturday's game against Philadelphia. NHL.com
Insight: Kings GM Dean Lombardi denied that the injury, which resulted from a hit early in the first period, is a head injury. Keep Doughty on your bench for the upcoming week. Hopefully the injury is not a concussion.
 
9/30/2011 12:09:00 AM
Description: According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Los Angeles Kings and Drew Doughty have reached a verbal agreement on an eight-year, $56 million contract. TSN
Insight: The Kings seemed to be stuck on not paying Doughty $7 million, but they finally appeared to give in. Doughty's holdout is now over, so fantasy owners who haven't drafted yet can pick him where they normally would. Although he scored just 11 goals and 40 points last season, Doughty has the potential to be a top-5 scoring fantasy defenseman.
 
9/17/2011 12:58:00 AM
Description: According to LA Kings Insider, the Kings plan to reduce Drew Doughty's pay by $25,000 for every day he misses training camp. TSN
Insight: Either Doughty will report to camp quickly and give in to the club's contract demands, or this situation could turn ugly very quickly. Unless Doughty signs a contract soon, this potential holdout could start to cut into his short-term fantasy value.
 
9/15/2011 3:12:00 PM
Description: According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Los Angeles Kings will not pay Drew Doughty more than $6.8 million per season, the amount that Anze Kopitar's contract averages out to. TSN
Insight: Doughty is believed to be looking for at least $7 million, so this is now a question of which party will give in. Even though the gap seems relatively small, fantasy owners need to keep an eye on Doughty's contract status in case he misses part or all of training camp and perhaps even the start of the season.
 
8/17/2011 11:45:00 PM
Description: According to the Los Angeles Times, the Kings and Drew Doughty have not discussed a new contract since mid-July. TSN
Insight: Doughty's three-year entry-level contract expired at the end of last season, and training camp starts in a month. However, it sounds like he will more than likely sign something with the Kings before training camp.
 
4/17/2011 12:59:00 AM
Description: Drew Doughty scored two goals and added two assists with a +2 in the Kings' 4-0 win over San Jose in Game 2 on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Doughty's production fell by 19 points this season from last season, so perhaps expectations weren't as high for him entering the playoffs. Keep in mind that he was a star for the Kings during last season's playoffs, scoring seven points (3g-4a) in the six-game loss against Vancouver.
 
2/4/2011 12:21:00 AM
Description: The NHL has awarded Drew Doughty with a goal originally credited to Ryan Smyth during Wednesday's game against Edmonton. ESPN
Insight: What this means is that Doughty scored two goals in the game, while Smyth only scored one. The game was played in Edmonton, where Smyth is still a very popular player. With the two goals, Doughty is up to just six this season after scoring 16 as a Norris Trophy finalist last season.
 
12/22/2010 9:00:00 AM
Description: Doughty picked up two assists on Tuesday night against Colorado.
Insight: Doughty now has points in four of his last five games with a goal and seven assists over that span. (RapidDraft.com)
