Doughty notched two assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Jets. The Kings top defenseman has been quiet on offense to start the season, so this multi-point performance was a welcome change. Doughty got a garbage time assist on an empty-netter, but also assisted on Jake Muzzin's game-tying goal in the second period. He skated a team-high 23:27 and had an unorthodox four giveaways. Doughty is yet to score a goal this season, but you shouldn't have to wait much longer with the way Los Angeles is playing lately.
Doughty picked up two helpers in 25:27 of ice time in Sunday's win over Edmonton. While he hasn't had a spectacular start to the season, Doughty now has three points in his last three games. The 25-year-old workhorse is still searching for his first goal, but he's fired 19 shots on goal and is logging heavy minutes, so it's bound to come soon. Now that the Kings have won five straight games and are rolling, look for Doughty to ride the momentum and amp up his production.
Doughty saw 27:53 of ice time Sunday in a 2-1 victory against the Avalanche. While the Kings won their second-straight game Sunday, Doughty failed to record a point. Although he hasn't been on the stat sheet since his first game this 2015-16 season, he still remains atop the first-unit power play and is part of the top defensive pairing with fellow teammate Bryaden McNabb.
Drew Doughty is expected to report to camp around 195 pounds after playing above 200 pounds in each of his previous seven seasons, Mark Whicker of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
