Biography:

Drew Doughty plays a vital part in the Los Angeles Kings organization. With all the pressure his position garners he has continued to step up to the challenge throughout his career to turn it into one for the ages. Drew still has a long time until the end of his hockey career, but with his strong work ethic and dedication to the game it is inevitable that he will continue to get better. Drew is now fighting for another Stanley Cup Final victory, this time against the #3 seeded New York Rangers.

Sports speaker Drew Doughty grew up in Ontario Canada where as a young boy he was given a small hockey stick for his birthday causing him to fall in love with the game after learning to skate and the rules at a very young age. Drew’s other sport love was soccer. His father had a long history with the game and Drew worked hard to gain the skills needed to be successful from him. As a teenager Drew decided to give up soccer in order to focus more on hockey. In 2005 Drew was drafted 5th overall in the OHL, Ontario Hockey League. During his time in that league Drew’s remarkable talents earned him honors including Defenseman of the Year and the All-rookie team. In 2008 he was ranked 3rd as the best player in the NHL Draft. He was selected 2nd overall by the Los Angeles Kings, the team which Drew currently plays on.

It is not unusual for young players around the age of 18 to sit out their first season in order to gain some advantage by watching and learning from the veterans. Drew however, did not need to do this. He was able to make the transition from the major junior league to the NHL with seemingly no issues. Since entering into the league Drew has won a Stanley Cup Finals, two Olympic gold medals, and a silver medal in the 2009 World Championships. He has been praised for his efforts in the Stanley Cup Finals and the Gold Medal defense. Analysts say both were games that will go down in NHL history.
