Doughty exited after hitting the boards face first in the third period of Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Hurricanes, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports. Coach Todd McLellan relayed after the game that the defenseman is "feeling pretty good."
Though Doughty appears to have avoided a serious injury, he should be viewed as day-to-day heading into Thursday's game against the Sabres and may be subject to further evaluation. The 29-year-old defenseman is day-to-day. Doughty logged one shot on goal and spent two minutes in the penalty box across 22:47 of ice time Tuesday.
