Kings, Doughty agree on eight-year deal

It took longer than either side might have liked, but Drew Doughty and the Los Angeles Kings finally found common ground.

The Kings announced Thursday night that they have reached verbal agreement with the 21-year-old restricted free-agent defenseman on an eight-year deal and that he'll fly to L.A. on Friday to sign the contract, which TSN says is worth an average of $7 million per season.

Doughty had 11 goals and 40 points last season, a comedown from 2009-10 when he finished with 16 goals and 59 points, was a finalist for the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defensemen as well as a second-team All-Star and an Olympic gold medal winner with Team Canada.

With the season set to start next week in Sweden, Doughty said he knew it was time to reach a deal.

"I definitely didn't want to miss that," he said of the start of the season. "This was never in mind, even being out for this long at all, but I knew I had to be there for the start of the season. I missed the boys a lot, and missed being in L.A., and this just felt like time to get it done and I'm really happy and really excited."

He also said there was never a question of signing anywhere else.

"I've been a Kings fan since I was a kid, and I was never thinking about going elsewhere," he said. "I knew it was just a matter of time before it got done. I hope we can win many Stanley Cups in that time, and I'm going to do everything I can to help lead us to that."
