Los Angeles Kings  Defenseman
NUMBER: 8 BIRTHDATE: December 8, 1989  (AGE 24)

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 such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
