Despite the absence of unsigned defenseman Drew Doughty, the Kings said their first day of training camp in El Segundo was business as usual.

"The plans do not change at all," Coach Terry Murray said Saturday. "We're going to miss Doughty. I wish he was here to be a part of it. He's a very important player, a big part of the locker room. He's a fun guy to be around. He's a great player for us but the plan does not change for the training camp. We have to get ready for the start of the year. We'll go through the same plan as we had in the early part of August."

General Manager Dean Lombardi said he hadn't spoken Saturday with Doughty's agent, Don Meehan.
