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.


Doughty hit Sharks forward Tyler Kennedy and immediately slowed up, bending over and making his way to the Kings' bench before leaving the game.

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.
