  • NHL All-Star Game
    • Unfortunately, the Pacific Division fell to the Central Division, but the game was fun for everyone involved.
      • Lauren Jauregui and country music star Chad Brownlee performed the U.S. and Canadian National Anthems, respectively. Plus, the Stanford Band gave a special performance during the game before GRAMMY Award-winning artist Bebe Rexha will take to the stage in the second intermission. 
      • This year's jerseys were not only sharp, but they're saving the oceans as well.

Doughty's strategy? "I'm going to give [McDavid] the puck and get a few easy apples."

Bust most of all, "try to make some money and play for pride."

Checks out.

Video: Accuracy Shooting: Doughty nails the targets

Doughty participated in the accuracy shooting contest, not the passing challenge like the past two years, thankfully.

He was all smiles and redeemed himself with a third place finish. Although, there were still some boos and hard feelings coming from the crowd.

"Last year I had fun, but it was embarassing," Doughty said, referring to the the passing challenge he competed in.

This year, was different, though. "I was nervous, but I was happy with myself," he said. "I wanted to win it, give back to the crowd."

Doughty landed in San Jose and is ready to rock and roll. Us on the other hand, we've doubled up our resources (aka snap specs) to ensure we're fully prepared. 

Tweet from @LAKings: Don���t worry, we came prepared this year.@dewyy8, please do your best to not lose all three pairs.#NHLAllStar pic.twitter.com/vxJEbF6wKP

Bobblehead selfies are the best kind of selfies. 

Tweet from @LAKings: Just a lovely a day exploring San Jose with @dewyy8 🤩 #NHLAllStar pic.twitter.com/zGB52D14Qm

Bailey will be joining Doughty on the ice for the All-Star Skills Competition!

Maybe he'll bring the defenseman some luck in the accuracy challenge! He'll be up against stiff competition like Joe Pavelski, Nikita Kucherov, Kris Letang, Auston Matthews, Kyle Palmieri, David Pastrnak and Blake Wheeler.

Tweet from @BaileyLAKings: I am in the hardest shot...how fast do you think I will shoot? https://t.co/KigvYwSbL4

He's been a busy Lion... even finding time to sign autographs and meet the other mascots!

Doughty is known to be a character off the ice, so we asked his NHL opponents about their conversations on the ice.

The results were pure gold.
