The play occurred late in the second period. Doughty was skating behind the Kings’ net when Maroon hit him in the head with his shoulder.
Kings defenceman Derek Forbort then stepped in and fought Maroon. Maroon was given a match penalty on the play and a game misconduct, along with a fighting major.
Doughty left the game, though he did return partway through the third period.
After the game, Doughty forgave Maroon for the apparently dirty hit delivered to him.
“I’ve known Maroon for a long time,” Doughty told reporters. “He’s just trying to finish a hit. I don’t know that he meant to try and hurt me. I forgive him.”
