Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty doesn't see how the NHL can complete its 2019-20 season during the coronavirus pandemic, even if postponed games are shifted to the middle of the summer.

"Honestly, I don't see how this season is going to return. I really don't," he said on a Monday conference call with reporters. "We have no idea when this virus is going to be over. We're all kind of just sitting at home, just hoping to return to the season or hoping to watch the playoffs return. But we're just sitting here, waiting, working out, being ready to return at any point. I think the NHL would have to make some kind of decision on that soon, and it seems like it's pretty tough to resume the season or the playoffs."
