LA Kings defenseman/assistant captain Drew Doughty has been selected to represent the Pacific Division in the 2019 NHL All-Star Game in San Jose, the National Hockey League announced today.

This marks the fifth consecutive NHL All-Star Game selection for Doughty.

Thirty-seven All-Star players were selected by the NHL's Hockey Operations Department, joining three of the four division captains elected by fans via the 2019 NHL All-Star Fan Vote presented by adidas: Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews (Atlantic), Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon (Central) and Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid (Pacific). Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin, who was voted captain of the Metropolitan Division, announced today that he will not attend the 2019 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend.

Doughty also represented the Kings at the 2018 All-Star Game in Tampa Bay; the 2017 All-Star Game at STAPLES Center; the 2016 All-Star Game in Nashville; and the 2015 All-Star Game in Columbus. He also participated in the 2009 NHL YoungStars Game in Montreal during All-Star Weekend.

Doughty has played in all 41 games for the Kings this season and has 22 points (3-19=22). He leads the Kings in assists and is tied for second in club scoring. He also leads the team in TOI (26:41), which is the most among all NHL skaters (Doughty also led the NHL in this category in 2017-18).
