Leafs fan Doughty can’t see T.O. move

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - SPORTS -

Los An­ge­les Kings de­fence­man Drew Doughty outed him­self as a “se­cret” fan of the Maple Leafs on Wed­nes­day, but one who would prob­a­bly never play for the team be­cause he doesn’t think he could han­dle the celebrity that would come with it.

“I’m happy the Leafs are do­ing what they’re do­ing,” Doughty said on Leafs Lunch on TSN 1050 ra­dio. “I think all of us south­ern On­tario players, we se­cretly want to play for the Leafs.

“Hon­estly, I hated the Leafs when I was a kid but I watched ev­ery Leafs game. So, se­cretly, I loved the Leafs.”

Doughty, from London, Ont., opened the door to the line of ques­tion­ing while prais­ing Leafs and Team Canada coach Mike Bab­cock.
