Doughty: ‘Since we won the last Cup, it’s been shit’
- Drew Doughty appears to have had enough of the Los Angeles Kings’ recent lack of success.
“We need to be a winning team this year,” the outspoken defenseman told reporters, including the Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliott, on the first day of training camp Friday. “We were embarrassed with the last four seasons … since we won the last Cup, it’s been shit.”
- The Kings finished dead last in the Pacific Division in 2018-19 and have only two first-round playoff exits to show for themselves since last winning the Stanley Cup in 2014.
- Doughty was instrumental to that championship team as well as the one in 2012, and he’s consistently placed among the league leaders in average ice time.
- The 29-year-old has been a member of the Kings for his entire 11-year career. He won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top blue-liner in 2016 and was drafted second overall by L.A. in 2008.
