It looked like a harmless play, but Kings defenseman Drew Doughty left Thursday's game against San Jose with an upper-body injury. He was not expected to return, according to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times.
He didn't return in the second period of LA's 2-1 loss. The second overall pick in 2008, Doughty has 37 points for the Kings this season, including 10 goals. He's also a plus-18 for a team that.
