TORONTO - Drew Doughty of the Guelph Storm won the Ontario Hockey League's Most Outstanding Defenceman award on Thursday.

The 18-year-old London, Ont., native won the Max Kaminsky Trophy after scoring 13 goals and 37 assists for 50 points in 58 games this season with the Storm. Doughty also helped Team Canada win the gold medal at the World Junior championships and participated in the Canada-Russia Challenge in November.

Doughty, a top rated prospect for the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, finished first in voting among the OHL Coaches Poll in the Best Offensive Defenceman category and second in the Best Defensive Defenceman category for the Western Conference.

Last year's winner of the Max Kaminsky Trophy was Marc Staal of the Sudbury Wolves, who is currently competing in the Stanley Cup playoffs with the New York Rangers.

Doughty will be formally presented with the trophy during the 2007-08 OHL Awards Ceremony, which will be held on June 4 at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
