There was much to be desired on the Kings’ blue line a season ago. A team that had great talent and equally great expectations was left standing at the first round alter, forced to watch the rest of the playoffs from the luxury of their pacific homes. The season may have ended against San Jose (the eventual Western Conference champions), but it...

For a team as low on cap space as the Los Angeles Kings, an infusion of young, cheap rookies onto the roster is not just important — it's an operational imperative. The numbers don't lie. Los Angeles has $56.1 million of 2016-17's $73 million salary cap tied up in eleven players, including one (Mike Richards) who is currently an unrestricted...

It’s not bleak by any stretch, with the flawlessly consistent Anze Kopitar donning the “C,” and the reigning Norris Trophy winner Drew Doughty destined to remain the game’s best on the blue line (sorry Ottawa).

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty is pretty good at hockey. It was for this reason that he won the Norris Trophy this past season as the NHL's best defenseman.
