Kings, Drew Doughty agree to eight-year extension
The Los Angeles Kings and defenseman Drew Doughty have agreed to an eight-year contract extension.
The deal will reportedly pay Doughty around $11 million per season through the life of the deal, which will go until his age-37 season. He will play out the final year of his current deal before this one kicks in. Even more impressive is that Doughty reportedly negotiated his own deal, saving himself between $1.75 and 2 million in agent fees.
In 2017-18, Doughty played 2,201 minutes in 82 games while accounting for 10 goals, 50 assists and 205 shots.
