Doughty notched a power-play assist over a whopping 31:40 of ice time Saturday, but the Kings dropped an overtime decision to the visiting Predators, 4-3.

EDGE Analysis

That's not a misprint on the playing-time output, as the royal club needed as much of Doughty as it could get against a Predators team trying to avoid falling into the basement of the Central Division standings. Remember, Doughty was the 2016 Norris Trophy winner and there's so much that he can do on both ends of the ice given his 26:30 of average ice time. This season, through 14 games, he's recorded three goals and seven helpers to complement a robust plus-9 rating.

Doughty scored shorthanded for his second straight game-winning goal Sunday against the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The good times continue to roll for Doughty, who helped the Kings extend their point streak to five games. He's operating at a point-per-game pace through five games and sporting a plus-6 rating, so fantasy goers who drafted the stud are being rewarded with a hot start. Doughty is an absolute workhorse on the Los Angeles blueline and a force in all situations, so make sure you keep him rolling.

Doughty scored the game-winning goal and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Doughty logged over 25 minutes of ice time in the victory and has gotten off to a solid start in 2016-17. After three consecutive seasons of 40-plus points, fantasy owners know what they're getting with the workhorse blueliner. Both points Saturday came with the man advantage, where Doughty quarterbacks the top unit with studs such as Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar up front. Keep him rolling.

Doughty is being protected from the Expansion Draft, John Hoven of Sirius XM reports.

EDGE Analysis

Being the top scoring defenseman in Los Angeles (12 goals, 44 points), it's not surprising the Kings want to keep him around. He averaged a whopping 27:09 of ice time per game, dishing out 129 hits and blocking 109 shots in that time. Doughty is a true leader on the blue line as well as in the locker room, being an alternate captain for Anze Kopitar.

Doughty tallied a goal, four shots and two penalty minutes in 25:01 of ice time in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old ended the season recording a goal in three of the final four games. Doughty saw a dip in production pretty much across the board, but that could be because the Kings cut back on his minutes slightly, as he averaged almost a minute less per game this season. Despite the small decreases, Doughty remains one of the steadiest fantasy defenseman one could own.

After going 27 games without scoring a goal, Doughty scored a power play goal Thursday against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

It was Doughty's first goal since Jan. 21, unleashing a bomb from the point that went untouched and straight past Mark Stuart and Connor Hellebucyk. It was Doughty's ninth of the season, which is in line with his career average despite the lengthy goal drought, and with 41 points this season has registered his third straight 40-point season. What's most impressive is his plus-3 rating even though the Kings have a minus-3 goal differential. Given his ability to provide fantasy owners to provide hits and blocked shots, Doughty remains one of the league's top fantasy defensemen.

Doughty has gone 24 games without a goal.

EDGE Analysis

Still, he has 14 assists in that span and sits in the NHL's top-20 scorers from the blue line with 38 points (eight goals, 30 assists). Doughty is fourth overall on a relatively low-scoring Kings' squad and continues to log heavy minutes every game. He's a steady and effective fantasy blue liner, but his overall offensive contributions will always be below his potential because of the team's defensive approach to the game.

Doughty factored in both Kings' goals on Saturday's game against the Islanders. He picked up an assist with the man advantage and scored an even-strength goal in a 4-2 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Doughty is a beast, but he's only on pace for a 44-point season, which is a big step down for a guy who broke the 50-point barrier last year. The drop runs parallel to the Kings poor performance this season and they're in a dogfight to win a wild card.

Doughty scored a power-play goal and registered a shorthanded assist with two shots on net over 29:52 of ice time during Monday's loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The workhorse defenseman has quieted a cold stretch -- one goal and two points through 10 previous games -- with consecutive multi-point showings and is now up to seven goals, 22 points and 96 shots for the campaign. His solid offensive numbers are supported by dependable peripheral statistics and a huge workload (27:09 of ice entering Monday's game). It all adds up to Doughty continuing to be a second-tier rearguard for your fantasy club and a worthy look in daily contests when Los Angeles draws a favorable matchup.

Doughty recorded a power-play goal in the 3-2 victory over the Sharks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first goal in 11 games and first power-play marker in 12 contests. Doughty is about on track for the same amount of goals as his Norris Trophy season, but he only has 12 assists and a plus-5 rating. He posted 37 assists and a plus-24 rating in 2015-16. Furthermore, he hasn't been as productive on the power play. While he had nine goals and 24 points on the man advantage last season, he has two goals and seven points on the power play through 37 games in 2016-17.
