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.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
