The Kings signed Drew Doughty to an eight-year, $88M ($11M AAV) extension.

Doughty, who will turn 29 in December, is signed through the 2026-27 season. Doughty has played in all 82 games for four straight seasons, ranking eighth among defensemen in points (201) and tied for 16th in goals (43) over that span. Doughty will become the highest-paid blueliner when his extension kicks in.

Doughty left Thursday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Doughty was injured when he went for a hit on Sharks forward Tyler Kennedy mid-way through the first period. As of the time the team left the arena, it was not clear whether Doughty would travel with to Vancouver, where the Canucks will host the Kings on Saturday night. Expect an update later on Friday.

No surprises or changes based on the way the Kings are skating in practice today. Drew Doughty is not on the ice, but that’s not a big surprise given that Doughty can’t play until Tuesday at the earliest and isn’t yet in the 7-to-10 day timeframe for his return.

Certainly an encouraging sign for his fantasy hockey owners but Doughty likely stays sidelined at least until Tuesday. Stay tuned for a further update on his status...

“I think the report, right after the game, is accurate. There’s going to be some time here that he’s going to need. Obviously putting him on the IR, there’s definitely seven days that are required before he can come off of it, so we’ll see where he is at the end of the seven days, with rehab and strengthening it."

No further update from coach Terry Murray. Vyacheslav Voynov will continue to take his place in the lineup.
