Kings notebook (March 11)

Also, there’s this stat courtesy of Nick Nickson. Drew Doughty is the 12th defenseman in Kings history to record at least 50 points in a season. The list, in chronological order, goes: Gary Sargent, Doug Halward, Larry Murphy (three times; club record 76 points in one season by a defenseman in 1980-81), Jerry Korab, Mark Hardy, Steve Duchesne (four times), Rob Blake (four times), Paul Coffey, Alex Zhitnik, Mathieu Schneider, Lubomir Visnovsky (twice) and Doughty. Doughty is the second-youngest to reach 50 points. Murphy was 19 years, 320 days old when he reached 50 in 1981.
