Doughty contract talks continue

The Summer of Doughty continues, as the Kings attempt to work out a new contract with restricted free agent defenseman Drew Doughty. The Kings presented a newly drawn-up series of potential contracts to Doughty’s representatives this week, of varying lengths and dollar amounts, and talks continued today but there’s no indication that a deal is imminent in the next few days. In a quick phone conversation today, Dean Lombardi said, “It’s safe to say we’ve talked the last couple days, and we’ll just continue to try to work through it. … I still feel confident that this is going to get done (before the start of training camp).”
