Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said the injury was not a head injury but will sideline Doughty for 7-10 days.
On the game's first shift, Doughty was hit hard by Flyers rookie forward Zac Rinaldo while skating through the Philadelphia zone. The hit occurred just 24 seconds into the game, and precipitated a fight between Rinaldo and the Kings' Dustin Penner.
Doughty left the ice under his own power, but played just one more shift totaling 1:10 the remainder of the period. He left the bench during the period.
He entered the game fourth in the League in average ice time per game at 27:33 in three games.
For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
