LOS ANGELES -- Drew Doughty still doesn't have an individual NHL-awarded trophy, but his place among the elite players in the sport is secure.
And he's filling his resume with team-based achievements quite nicely.
Doughty capped an incredible 2013-14 season Friday by playing more than 41 minutes in the Los Angeles Kings' 3-2, double-overtime, Game 5, Stanley Cup-clinching victory against the New York Rangers at Staples Center.
He led playoff defensemen with 18 points, and led the Kings in average ice time at 28:45 per game. Doughty often was the best player on the ice for Los Angeles, which faced a gauntlet just to reach to the Final then win a second championship in three seasons.
