Doughty participated in the Hardest Shot competition. Although he was not a favorite in the event with Montreal Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber a shoo-in to win (and he did, with a 102.8 miles per hour slap shot), Doughty recorded a 94.6 miles per hour shot, giving him the edge in his heat against Colorado Avalanche forward Nate MacKinnon, whose hardest shot was 92.3 MPH.
“I knew I didn’t have a hard slap shot,” said Doughty. “I knew all along that it wasn’t very hard, but it’s pretty accurate. That’s why I score on them sometimes.”
