A popular guy

Drew Doughty, quite naturally, was a popular interview target this week, given that he grew up in London, Ontario, a two-hour drive from Toronto, and that, next month, he will represent Canada in the Olympics. Doughty was asked about the games, but first he was asked how it felt to play in Toronto for the first time as an NHL player…

DOUGHTY: “I wasn’t a Leaf fan growing up or anything like that, but that’s what we watched back home, was the Leafs. My family is all Leaf fans. Coming here the first time, it’s definitely a moment to remember for me.”

DOUGHTY: “I kind of don’t think about it [the Olympics] too much. Right now I’m just focusing on the Kings, and we’re in a big battle for playoff spots right now. That’s my main focus, but the Olympics is always definitely in the back of my mind, and I can’t wait to get it going.”
