LA Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi isn’t surprised by the growth of teammate Drew Doughty

Here’s what Rob Scuderi said Saturday about the growth and progress of fellow Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in the four years since they were teammates on the 2012 Stanley Cup championship team: “You know it’s there and you know it’s going to happen when you see him in his younger years. It’s nice to see, but it hasn’t been a surprise. You can see his heart and his head were always in the right place even when he was 19 and 20 and that he would eventually develop into a good leader for this team. It’s great to see, but it’s also not a surprise.”
