Drew Doughty says he wants to sign a new contract with the Los Angeles Kings, the only team he’s ever known in the NHL.

“I always wanted to be an L.A. King and I want to stay an L.A. King,” Doughty said Friday, according to NHL.com. “I can’t remember what day we can start talking, but I’m sure we will when the time comes.”

Doughty, 29, addressed his contract situation at the team’s locker clean out after the Kings were swept by the Vegas Golden Knights in the opening round of the playoffs. He will be a free agent on July 1, 2019 when he finishes an eight-year, $56 million contract.

Doughty said he likes the direction the team is headed and wants to be a part of the future.
