PHILADELPHIA - Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty was forced out of Saturday's game against Philadelphia after a punishing hit by Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo.

Rinaldo levelled Doughty with a shoulder-to-chest hit in the first period. Kings forward Dustin Penner came to the aid of his teammate and started a fast fight with Rinaldo. It came only 24 seconds into the game.

Doughty returned for a shift but was not on the bench in the second period. The Kings later ruled him out of the game with an undisclosed upper body injury.
