Drew Doughty D LA 16 Days

Doughty picked up an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Devils.

The blueliner has gathered at least one helper in three consecutive games, continuing what has been another impressive season. While Doughty will probably never reach the 59-point total he hit during his second season in the league, he's still unquestionably one of the more valuable defenseman in both real-life and fantasy terms.

Doughty collected a pair of helpers and logged a whopping 33:45 of ice time in Saturday's shootout loss to the Jets.

Saturday marked the fourth time in five games Doughty has logged over 30:00 of ice time. The 25-year-old has been on a tear of late, recording 13 points (two goals) in his last 14 games. On pace for 50 points, Doughty is a must-start every game.

Doughty registered an assist in his 28:43 of ice time in Saturday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Predators.

The good times keep rolling for Doughty, despite taking a minus-2 rating in the loss. He's recorded at least a point in all put three of his last 12 games, making him a no-brainer in any fantasy lineup.

Doughty nabbed his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Oilers.

Doughty ended Ben Scrivens' shutout bid midway through the third period, getting a shot from the point just under the crossbar to get the Kings on the board. With the game heading to overtime, Doughty was able to rack up 31:59 of ice time, marking the 17th time he's cleared the 30-minute mark this season. His 29:10 average TOI ranks second in the NHL this season, trailing only the Wild's Ryan Suter (29:40).

Doughty picked up an even-strength assist and a power-play assist in Thursday's win over the Senators.

It wasn't his best game, as he finished with just an even rating despite the productivity and was charged with two giveaways, but Doughty snapped a six-game pointless drought with this performance, which has to have his fantasy owners breathing a sign of relief.

Doughty netted an unassisted goal in Tuesday's loss to the Predators.

Doughty saw a whopping 33:40 of action in the win, the third time in four games that he's gone over the 30-minute mark. It's hard to argue with coach Darryl Sutter's decision to raise the rearguard's ice time, as he's now tallied a point in five consecutive games and has racked up seven points over his last seven contests.

Doughty found the back of the net and added a helper in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Ducks.

He also spent a whopping 30:30 on the ice, firing three shots on goal in the process. For all of his real-world talent and skill, Doughty doesn't make for the sexiest fantasy asset among the league's top defencemen, but his eight points, plus-three rating, and 39 shots in 16 games aren't anything to scoff at, either.

Doughty registered an assist in Sunday's loss to the Hurricanes.

Doughty has yet to find twine on any of his 27 shot attempts this season, keeping him well off pace of reaching double-digits in goals for the fifth time in his brief career. He's still attempting shots at essentially the same rate (2.25 per game) as last season, so there's reason to think the goal drought can mostly be attributed to unfortunate luck.

Doughty assisted on two scores in Sunday's victory over the Jets.

After being held without a point on only four shots in goal in his first two goals, Doughty demonstrated his capabilities as an offensive threat Sunday. He doubled his shot total for the season with four attempts on goal, while also finishing with a plus-2 rating. Though Doughty is a solid two-way defenseman and an annual contender for the Norris Trophy, it's worth noting that he only had four multipoint games last season, which likely places him in a tier below fantasy blueline stalwarts Erik Karlsson and Shea Weber.

Doughty (upper body) scored a power play goal and logged over 22 minutes of ice time in his first action of the preseason Tuesday.

Doughty had been held out with some sort of upper body injury sustained during offseason workouts shortly before training camp opened but had always remained confident that he'd be back in plenty of time for the regular season. He may not play in all of the remaining exhibition games but he's all set for the season opener.
