Will be playing for his country for the third time - won a silver medal with Canada at the 2009 World Championship and a gold medal at the 2008 World Junior Championship where he was named the Top Defenseman.

At age 20, is the youngest player on the Canadian roster.

His roommate on the Kings, U.S. Olympian Dustin Brown, had to endure a nerve filled night on Dec. 29 as the possibility of being named to Team Canada finally hit Doughty. "I couldn't sleep last night (Dec. 29). I'm going to be honest. It was a pretty tough night for me last night. I was up, then I was sleeping, then I was back and forth. I was pretty nervous. I didn't know what my chances were. I knew I had an outside shot." Doughty got a voice mail at 9:00 a.m. on Dec. 30 from Team Canada executive Doug Armstrong that he had made the team.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
