Leafs fan Doughty can’t see T.O. move
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.
