He was named Top Defenseman of the tournament after recording four assists (0-4--4) in seven games. Doughty became just the fifth Canadian defenseman to have won the award (Marc Staal 2006, Dion Phaneuf 2005, Bryan McCabe 1995, Gord Kluzak 1982) and the first to win the award before being drafted into the NHL.
- Was named as an alternate captain for the 2008 OHL All-Star Classic and also participated in the 2007 OHL All-Star Classic.

- Represented Canada at the 2007 IIHF World Under-18 Championship in Finland and in 2006 at the World Under-17 Championship.
- He wore the number 99 growing up because of his favorite player and idol Wayne Gretzky. Once Gretzky’s number was retired he switched to number 19 for Joe Sakic. He now wears number eight because his birthday is December 8th.
- He started playing hockey when he was three-years-old and was a member of the London Junior Knights for eight years.
- His nickname is “Donut” because his number (8) is two donuts.
- He patterns his game after Detroit’s Nicklas Lidstrom “because he is calm, offensive, consistent and he makes it look easy.”
