Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty underwent successful wrist surgery on Monday and will miss the rest of the season, the team announced.

Los Angeles expects him to make a full recovery and be ready for next season.

Doughty has been out of the lineup since March 7. He was enjoying a solid campaign for the Kings, scoring seven goals and adding 24 assists in the 39 games he skated in.

Injuries have hampered the Kings all season long, with defensemen Mikey Anderson and Sean Walker currently on long-term injured reserve.
