A FEW MINUTES WITH DREW DOUGHTY
LAST TIME SOMEONE LAID YOU OUT?
That would have to be last season when the Flyers Zac Rinaldo separated my shoulder with a heavy hit.
FAVORITE HOCKEY RIVALRY GROWING UP?
Growing up just outside of Toronto it was always great watching Toronto play Montreal.
ONE NHL LOCKEROOM THAT NEEDS TO BE BLOWN UP?
That would have to be in Long Island. The lockeroom is old, the rink is old, it just stinks.
ONE GUY WHO DRIVES YOU CRAZY ON THE ICE BUT WOULD TAKE AS A TEAMMATE IN A HEARTBEAT?
That could be a long list but Steve Ott would be at the top.
ONE TEAMMATE THAT COULD USE SOME FASHION TIPS?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO PASS THE TIME ON SOME OF THOSE LONG PLANE RIDES?
Definitely playing cards. It's me Quick and Trevor Lewis. Anything from Hearts to Poker.
LAST GOOD CONCERT YOU WENT TO?
ONE SPORTING EVENT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST
Chelsea soccer game

1 ON 1 WITH COLIN FRASER
Last time you got caught with your head down?
That goes back to my days in Chicago when I got nailed by Francois Boullion. Smaller guy, low center of gravity. At 5-8 and 200 pounds he's pretty solid.
One guy who you can't turn your back on in the lockeroom or you will be his next practical joke victim?
No question, Matt Greene. He's always keeping the boys loose. He told me, "the day he stops making me a victim is the day he stops liking me."
What do you remember most about your first game?
I remember it was against Jeremy Roenick when he was with the Coyotes. Here he was this 50 goal scorer, a great player and I actually got to take my first face off against him.
When you are not sleeping on the plane, you are?
I'm watching "Breaking Bad" on DVD
One perk you enjoy by being a pro athlete?
Food!! Every time you turn around someone is shoving food in your face and it's usually pretty good.
Worst road lockeroom?
Calgary sticks out in my mind. It is a tough one.
Your favorite hockey rivalry growing up?
I hate to say it but growing up in British Columbia I was a Canucks fan so I was got pumped up about watching Vancouver versus Edmonton or Calgary.
Worst injury you suffered in a game but still kept playing?
I played three games with a broken foot. It was more of an annoyance than actual pain. The X-rays were initially negative and then the trade came to Los Angeles and that started out as a bit of a fiasco.
One guy you wished you had the opportunity to play with?
The "Great One". Don't think that needs any explanation.
One celebrity that would be cool to hang out with?
If I wasn't married it would be Charlie Sheen.
What stands out from your day with the Stanley Cup?
How it brings together family and friends. The look on everyone's face when they see the Cup and how much they enjoy it. It was pretty special.
