Kings defenseman Doughty takes part in full practice

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, who sat out the first three days of training camp with an upper-body injury, took part in a full practice Tuesday.

He skated Monday with the players who did not play in the Kings' split-squad preseason games against the Arizona Coyotes, and offered a reassuring "good to go" after practice on Tuesday when asked about his status by L.A. Kings Insider.

Doughty sustained the injury during on-ice, off-season workouts in London, Ontario, in an incident he deemed being "just bad luck."

"Things happen when you're on the ice," Doughty said. "It's a physical sport. It's not like we were playing physical hockey out there or anything. It was just kind of an accident. It left me out for a little bit."
