Doughty recorded an assist, but went minus-3 in Saturday's loss to the Canucks.

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.

Doughty dished out a pair of helpers and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Edmonton.

A much-needed good outing for 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.

Doughty handed out two helpers and skated to a plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Avalanche.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.
